Another Kincaid Card

Another late post too! The Christmas rush is on here, and in our house is compounded by the fact that my second daughter's birthday is the 8th! I know it's not that close too Christmas but since I am not the best plan aheader (is that a word) it's close enough! So today I had to run out and get presents and party supplies which actually worked out pretty well!


I wanted to share another Thomas Kincaid card I made recently. Cornish Heritage Farms celebrated Lisa Strahl's 30 birthday on Saturday with a HUGE all day Birthday Bash! There were challenges every hour, games and prizes. I was not able to participate in much, but I was able to get one challenge in late that night and still have plans to make a card with Debbie Olsen's Sketch. Anyway, the challenge I participated in was a Ways To Use it Challenge - by Lisa Silver to use Glossy Accents or other clear glossy medium. I literally only had about 15 minutes to complete my card since the baby was waking up but I really wanted to participate so I came up with this really quick card using my Thomas Kincaid Skater's Pond stamp. I just love this image! I love the vintage look - the ladies in their long skirts and muffs, so great!

So I inked my stamp with Palette Burnt Umber and stamped on Very Vanila cardstock. I distressed the edges with my Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser, matted it with Always Artichoke and added that to my Bazzill cardstock (I think the color is Root Beer). As with the other Kincaid card I did, the only thing I colored was the lights. I used my Prismacolor pencils and OMS (odorless mineral spirits) to color and shade the lights go give them a nice glow. Then I added my Crystal Effects (my glossy medium) to the windows to make them really glow! Finally I added my sentiment (from by Papertrey Ink) in Artichoke ink to the top right corner.

See, really easy and very quick! It was a fun way to play along for a bit - and it was well worth it because I won a prize - yea!! :) Have a great night everyone and thanks for stopping by!
