Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize this month?

Here's a bit about my project today.

I've combined both the Thanksgiving Friends and the Bountiful Blessings stamp sets today.  Copics were used to color the images and lots of glitter and embossing powder.  In my mind's eye, Gerty is the eccentric one, so she always is wearing funky glasses.  Today, her glasses coordinate with her dress and are covered with Laser Blue glitter.  Surf glitter was added to all of steam coming from the turkey and the pot on the counter.  Eunice's outfit was hand drawn using a Copic red multi-liner.  The sentiment on her apron was added with a Copic Black mulit-liner.


The frame around the girls was die cut using Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Ovals, covered with VersaMark and heat set with Indian Corn embossing powder.  I used the Distressed Embossing technique around the card base with Distress Ink (Pine Needles) and Sparkle embossing powder.  Cloud Nine velvet glitter was added to the strips of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape holding down the string of pearls.  This gives it a bit of sparkle and takes care of any sticky adhesive that might be showing at the same time.  For even more details, you can visit my SNS Art Gallery.

Hope you've enjoyed this month's SNS New Reveal.  Don't forget to leave each Designer a comment and you could be the lucky winner to receive all six of the new rubber stamp sets!  The winner will be announced on Sept 3.
