Paper and Ink Imaginings

CC444 – Thanksgiving Card


The color challenge at Splitcoaststampers has five colors this week. Usually, I find the challenges with five colors to be overwhelming. This time, though, the colors are the perfect fall palette, and I even added an extra color (green). The colors are: Cajun Craze, Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla. Dessert option of something fussy cut or die cut. The colors reminded me of high school Homecoming games and chrysanthemums.

When I was working on the poppy birthday card for my Mom last weekend, I stamped the poppy image on multiple scraps of watercolor paper and embossed them, so I would have the poppies around to color whenever the mood struck me.

I colored the flowers with stamp pads and a blender pen, letting them pretend to be brightly colored mums.
