Time to Give Thanks with JustRite


I haven't played along in a while with the JustRite challenge and this weekend I had some extra time that I got to.  The theme for this challenge was using the " bleach technique" .  I did the technique on my leaves.  I inked my paper with variegating  fall colors and then stamped using bleach and of course a JustRite leaf stamp.  I finished off my leaves by inking the edges with a darker ink.

I couldn't think of a better card to create for this week with Thanksgiving right around the corner.  I have to say I'm so thankful for so many things in my life.  Of course my boys and family, my job, the area I live in and the friends I hold dear.  I'm also thankful for each of you and thank you for sharing my artistic passion with me on my blog.  I'm one blessed girl.

Here is a complete list of JustRite products I used for this projects.
