Harvest Canvas

I do a monthly mixed media challenge every month at a local stamp store. The theme this monthy was Harvest.  I used a variety of products on this card including Silks paints, acrylic paints,  and Viva 3D stamp paint. The pumpkins and fence post/wagon wheel were watercolored. There was washi tape in the kit, so I used that for the "Thanks"

With Sympathy

We learned a brayering technique at stamp club this month to do backgrounds. It is a really cool look. I think it makes a pretty sympathy card.
