Thanksgiving Sharing

      Another challenge starts today at QKR Stampede and runs for the next 2 weeks.  My DT card features an image called "Scarecrow and Friends" and I thought it really reflected the sharing we do at Thanksgiving when we all gather and share the feast (if not the cooking - lol) before us.  Sharing is just part of gratitude and thankfulness, I've found.

     The image is colored with ProMarkers and cut with a Spellbinders die.  The darker paper (which is dry embossed and lightly sanded) and the kraft CS pieces are scraps from the basket, as is the dp framing the fussy cut sentiment.  The pumpkin is fabric and the ribbon is grosgrain.  Everything was mounted onto a piece of white CS which I embossed with my Linen EF.

       I love coloring critters and use far more critter images than people but I'm trying to improve my coloring on people so I've begun looking for and using images which combine critters and people.  Here's another one.  To me, coloring fur or feathers is easier than coloring human faces and hair.

I chose my colors from the board at CMH Color Dare #468.
blue/orange/brown/tan/red + B&W


     I hope you'll come over and play in our challenge this fortnight.  We always have an "Anything Goes" theme so you may enter any card you like.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Very cute! There’s definitely something about the scarecrow that looks like the girl in the inspiration photo! Thanks for playing along with Color My Heart Color Dare. X

Cute image and great coloring. Me too, coloring critters are easier than coloring people. Those crows are not afraid of the scarecrow, they are definitely friends. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare.
