International Blog Highlight Winners Hop October- Country Home

I am so excited and thankful to be part of the Top 10 Winners Hop from Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight! Thank you to everyone who voted for my card from October’s International Blog Highlight, allowing me another opportunity to post on the Winners Hop. Ten Demonstrators from around the world will be posting today. The theme today is Thanks.

I created this card using several techniques including masking and sponging. I have fallen in love with all you can do with the Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers and the Country Home stamp set. Additional texture was added with the use of the Textured Essentials stamp set. I continued the background design on the right of the inside.

By sponging, I blended Misty Moonlight and Cajun Craze inks together to create the background. The sentiment and blotches are in Early Espresso ink. The Stampin’ Blends colors are: Misty Moonlight, Gray Granite, Smoky Slate, Just Jade, Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade and Crumb Cake.

I hope you enjoyed my card. I am very thankful for all the good things; sometimes they are difficult to see, but there are many good things and good people out there.

Thank you for stopping by today!
