November Angel Art Challenge & Blog Awards


Stacy set up a Thanksgiving Angel Art Challenge on Paperwings. Although the forum is for TAC Demos only, the majority of the gallery is open to the public. You should check it out for some fabulous ideas! So, back to the challenge, Stacy challenged us to create a TAC Thanksgiving Project or Card. I chose a card that can either be given as a gift enclosure card or used as a placecard for the table setting. I did this card for my October card class and it was a big hit!



The card features the Give Thanks TAC stamp set which I borrowed from my friend, Barb N. Thanks! I used the coluzzle to create the 3" circle card out of the bazzill monochromatic orange pack. The coloring was done with prismacolor pencils and Goo Gone and then "grounded" with a grey tombow marker. Pop dots and ribbon finished it off. The circles (brown and white ultrasmooth) were cut with the coluzzle so it was sooo easy and quick! I love the shadow and shading you can get with the goo gone coloring technique. Heather taught me some tips for shading for which I'm so grateful. Thanks, G'Ma! (she's my upline's, upline in TAC so I call her g'ma! *grin*).

Here's a link to the other angels participating in the challenge so you can check out their fantastic projects too!

  12. Oooh, I just love pumpkins, and yours is colored so beautifully. (with Goo Gone you say? Wow, I can barely stand the smell of that stuff without getting all lightheaded you should try a cheap bottle of odorless mineral spirits from Walmart for a lighter sent). :) Kel
