Belli Challenge #40 - Anything Thanksgiving

Good Wednesday morning!!! Its that time again, Belli Challenge time!!! Our theme this week is ANYTHING Thanksgiving. I used an old (retired) set of Stampin Up's. Its called a Grateful Heart. I stamped the main image in Black pigment ink onto vellum and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I colored the image on the backside of the vellum. I used Always Artichoke on the artichoke, Certainly Celery on the asparagus and Elegant Eggplant on the grapes. Let that dry and then mount that on a neutral cardstock. I mounted mine on Whisper White cardstock. The Happy Thanksgiving (A Stamp in the Hand) was stamped in Elegant Eggplant on to the So Saffron cardstock. This was another OLD stamp I had laying around. I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on only 2/3 of the So Saffron cardstock. The folder I used was Diamonds in the Rough. Then I used 2 Old Olive brads on either side of the words.
The technique I used on the main image is called Stained Glass Technique and you can follow the tutorial I did on the SCS site. Here is the link to that: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/stainedglass1
