Scarecrow Wishes a Happy Thanksgiving

Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge this week is to Use No Designer Paper. I was playing and decided to do a quick one layer card....as far as I could go without DP. I stamped the scarecrow from Mark's Finest Papers' "Country Thanksgiving"  stamp set with Memento Black Ink onto Kraft paper and colored with pencils. I masked the Scarecrow and sponged the background with Distress Inks. Also Masked a circle to do a Sunshine in the sky. Finished by using Glaze pens to highlight some of the design. I think I would have liked better details than this technique gives. Pencils did not color that well on the Kraft CS. Stamped the sentiment also with the black ink. Will plan to redo this card but it is what it is for now.

 I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
