I am making Thanksgiving cards right and left and decided I would enter one in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

They are featuring their products this week.

I heat embossed the image in gold embossing powder on black card stock. I masked some of the images to get this scene.    I painted it with Mica water colors.(Sandy Allnock did this technique a couple of weeks ago and I loved it!)  The background is a leaf block stamp.  I have to say using my Misti has helped SO much when doing background images, no more trying to guess where to put the stamp if you missed a spot when stamping.  Yay!  The sentiment is also gold heat embossed.  I first tried vellum for the sentiment but it didn't show up well enough.  I hope you like, I wish the photo showed off the gold and the mica water colors better, *sigh*.

Thanks for coming by and I hope to be back soon.

Supplies: Stamps: Simon Says Stamp Apple of My Pie, Autumn Blessings, Leaves Background. Ranger Fine Gold Embossing powder, USArt Mica Watercolor.
