give thanks...

In keeping with this months theme of gratitude over at Paper Craft Planet, I created this wallhanging to show off this sweet quote..."give thanks with a grateful heart."



To create the bird, I found a coloring book image at http://www.lucygardens.com/ . I resized it to a workable size, traced it onto watercolor paper and cut it out, making sure to cut extra for any parts that I wanted lifted. I watercolored it and then shaped it after it was dry with an embossing stylus.


supplies used:
stamps: rubbernecker
paper: Scenic Route
other: lucygardens.com coloring book image

Be sure to stop by the Planet and check out what the other PCP girls have been up to this week. lots of fun projects and cards!
