Paper Craftin with Erica

Thanksgiving Cutie

It's time for another blog hop with The Angel Company!  Since this is a Fall 'hop' I made a cute card with a couple of techniques.  The majority of the cute little Indian is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS.  However, the best "skin look" is favored by Copic markers…. so… of course, I had to use them.   However, because I didn't use 'compatible' paper, I had to be very careful so it wouldn't feather.  I also highlighted some areas with my Copics.


I used a discontinued stamp set to stamp the leaves and the "hello fall" saying.  Here's the kicker… I used bleach to stamp some of the leaves (the whiter ones).  How cool is that?  The cute little Thanksgiving darling is from the Thanksgiving Cuties set.  It's the same set I used on my centerpiece project.

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to check out my amazing blog candy below!  **HUGS**

    Very nice! The bleached background is great! We played with bleach last night in our stamp club. Been a long time since I used it.
