CI Paints Inspired By: Thankful For You

Good Morning Bloggers!!!
It is time for another fun
Inspired By Challenge 
over at

This weeks Challenge~
Inspired By: Thankful For You
We want to see all those Thanksgiving or Thank You card seeing that 
Thanksgiving is only a few days away :)

I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch as well as November's Bingo Challenge from
Bugaboo Stamps

And came up with this....
I just LOVE Bugaboo stamps and this CUTE image is one of my favorites....
I colored them with my copics but also added some CI Paint for some extra sparkle

Here is a close-up if the sentiment~ Lots more CI Paint on the leaves and the brads...
(I did not have any that color so I painted my own!!)
The sentiment is from My Creative Time~ Piles of Smiles and I used 
Deliquesce Clear embossing powder over Gathered Twigs distress ink

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Bazzill, White, Echo Park
Ink~ Copics
Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Stamps~ Bugaboo
AKV Fall Pumpkin Trio
My Creative Time~
Piles of Smiles
Dies/Cuts~ My Creative Time~
Scalloped and Stitched Circle Dies
Leaf Dies
Cameo Scalloped Edges
Mango, Chocolate, Evergreen
Deliquesce Clear Embossing Powder 
Orange Truffle

I hope you like my project and will play along with us over at
Remember you do not need CI Paints on your project but if you have them we would
LOVE to see how you use them!!!
