So Grateful

 I just received some of the new release from The Greetery, and here's my first play with some of them.

supplies: white cardstock, a dotted yellow dp, The Greetery Pitcher-esque, Bittersweet Bouquet, and Square Dance stencil, Gina K Designs Autumn Wreath Builder sentiment, Altenew mini ink cubes

I have a large collection of salt-glazed stoneware, which is a hand-made pottery usually grey with blue painted details.  And pitchers are my favorites, so useful for holding flowers!  So I started by making my pitcher using greys with a blue decoration.  I stamped the bittersweet bouquet and a few extra little branches.  Then I used the stencil to make my gingham background all in the same blues, and finished with a yellow tablecloth to hold the sentiment.

The gingham stencil is 3 parts, and can be stamped in 1 to 3 colors - this was a must-have for me!  I used 2 colors here.

It's Friday again!  Enjoy your weekend!
