A Splash of Thanks:


Happy Saturday all!  Another chilly, chilly day out there so it's best to stay indoors and craft =)

If you have been following my blog lately, I have been trying use my stash and new techniques lately.

I used a sentiment background technique as I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's blog.  I placed a bunch of my unused sentiments together to make a background (or in this case a front ground??) in a tone on tone technique.

I also have been loving my ink blenders so I created the background in teal and green and also inked the feathers to match!
