Giving thanks


For the CASE study challenge #4, my second entry, using the same background paper as my first entry - love this peachy color!  This time I followed Maki's sketch almost exactly, and used probably my favorite Hero Arts stamp of the year, Hydrangea.  I've never seen a peach hydrangea, but give them time, and I bet one will be developed soon! 

I'm also submitting this to the Hero Arts challenge for the month, Everything Autumn, and have joined the HA Flickr blog hop beginning today.  We were to show off our style, and this is pretty much me: flowers, laciness, pastels, hand-coloring, paper-piecing.  You should have arrived here from Anita's blog - thanks so much for stopping by! Now move on to Anne's.   Hero Arts has been very good to me, and the Flickr group is the best!  Overloads of talent, all freely shared.  I'm so glad to be a part of it! 

Supplies: Heidi Grace "Jeepers Peepers" paper (reverse), kraft, parchment, burnt orange cardstocks, versafine onyx black ink, Hero Arts K5376 Hydrangea, colored pencils, art flowers, Sunshine Mixed Accents (pearl), PTI Vintage Picnic Sentiments, Martha Stewart doily punch
