Thanks, Art Peeps

OCC2011Nov19My sincere thanks to all of you who've been so supportive since I've joined this community this year. I've met so many kind and supportive people as a result of starting my blog, and I truly appreciate all your support, suggestions, and encouragement.

This week at Our Creative Corner our hostess Holly Kean has posted a photo for the challenge. We're asked to create a card or other paper project based on inspiration from the photo, which is a picture of an elaborately set Thanksgiving table.   I couldn't take my eyes off the print on the tablecloth, which looks suspiciously similar to a certain embossed grungeboard I had on hand.

I cut the sign and two tags from Tim's Sizzix dies and inked them heavily with Stone Gray Staz-on before edging them with Black Soot Distress Ink.  I stacked several cuts of the sign holder and attached the sign to it with eyelets and  black waxed linen.  The sign itself is popped up on foam tape. The letters are Tim's Apha Parts.

The papers are Basic Grey, from the Vagabond and Black Tie collections.  Basic Grey has a challenge right now for mixing and matching paper sets, Gingersnap Creations has a color challenge (GC124) to use black and gray, and Simon Says Stamp has a theme of Thanks or Thanksgiving.

I hope you'll join us at OCC this week. Click here to see Holly's inspiration pic.

Thanks for the visit.  Hope you have a fantastic day!
