SHOPPING OUR STASH # 375 - Giving Thanks

Hello and welcome back crafty friends!
we are giving thanks, either to celebrate Thanksgiving, or 
as a simple Thank You, your choice!

Here's what I came up with:

I used a few powder dyes spritzed with water on some mixed media
paper for a water color look. Once dry, I spritzed it again, this time with gold Glimmer Mist.
This was die cut using a leaf cover plate.
I tried to get a close up picture of all the gorgeous shimmer, but you
know it's super hard to achieve.

The single leaf on my sentiment panel is actually a 3D foam leaf from Scrapbook Adhesives.
I won a package of them many years ago, and recently came across them, the package
never opened until now. I dipped one of the sides in embossing powder and heat embossed it.
Looks really cool so now I may have to try this technique again.

We'd love to see what you create in the Shopping Our Stash gallery, and hope
you'll join us this week! For more amazing ideas, simply visit my teammies blogs to
see what they came up with!
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a fabulous day!
