Can you believe we are into November already?!! I swear, the older I get the faster time goes by. So I guess I better get right down to business!
First I want to announce that CC&CC has THREE NEW DT MEMBERS! We are so happy to welcome Cindy, Mikha and Samantha to our team. Be sure to stop by and meet them! And while you are there take a look at the great cards all of our DT have done for you. Join in the fun and play along with us!
For our first challenge in November CC&CC is doing a monochromatic theme. I like doing these, but sometimes they me think a bit harder. Our lovely digi images were provided by our sponsor Robyn's Fetish, and the one I chose is called "Cornucopia" and is perfect for Thanksgiving. Now usually when I look at an image like this one, I imagine it colored with lovely Autumn colors. But for this challenge I couldn't do that. So on went the thinking cap! I decided on brown as my basic color. Burlap and jute are really a hot item right now, and I just happened to have purchased some! It looked perfect with the shades of brown. I attached a burlap flower and added a gold turkey charm, then wove some dark brown ribbon through the burlap piece. The image is printed directly on to the patterned paper and then run through my Cutlebug with a die for the shape. The sentiment was a small stamp I had in my stash.
I am very pleased with the result, and want to do some more Thanksgiving cards with the burlap. I really like the texture and the way it looks.
One of our DT members has been ill and could not complete her card. So I used the digi assigned to her and made a second card with the image. The digi is called "Welcome Fall Turkey".
