Created ByHand - Give Thanks


The theme for today's Created Byhand challenge is 'Thanks' and this month's challenge on the Ranger Yahoo group is 'Harvest'. I just bought this stamp at Archiver's ($1.99 spot) the other day and it ended up being perfect for both! First I sponged a wood circle with various Distress/Adirondack inks and then stamped the image using black soot Adirondack ink. I really love stamping on wood - it has so much texture and takes ink beautifully!

  4. Wow! I bought that same stamp from the hot spot (actually got it free with a coupon). Does this mean you and I have similar artistic sensibilities? The piece is lovely.

  8. That would make a great book cover! Then add pages of things you give thanks for. Love the colors. Shelly & Cyndi, I have that same stamp! Bought it years ago....or something so close you couldn't tell the difference! Ronnie
