Peachy Keen Thankful Blog Hop

 Hello, and welcome to The ThINKin' Spot, and welcome also to our Peachy Keen Thankful Blog hop!  Our designers, both past and present have come together to share some things we've created with a "Thankful' theme.   You should have arrived here from the creative and very talented Cristina Garcia's Blog.  If not, then you're going to want to go waaaaay back to the beginning, at The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog because this is the last stop on this hop, and you're not going to want to miss a thing!

Here's a look at the card I created for this fabulous hop.  You may notice that this image looks a little different than most.  It's missing something, actually.  Can you figure out what it's missing?


How about the lines?!!  That's exactly what is left out!!  I used a "new to me" stamping technique, where I stamped the image in a light colored ink.  In this case I used Memento ink, as I usually do, but I stamped the Tanner Turkey image in Desert Sand colored ink, instead of my standard Tuxedo Black.  By using the lighter colored ink, what lines that are faintly there, completely disappear when the image is colored with Copics.  Pretty cool, huh?  I think so anyway!  This tecnhique really reminds me more of painting, because the colors actually meet instead of having a heavy black line between them.   I love the look for something a little different.

Well, as I mentioned, this is the last stop on the Thankful Blog Hop!  We're sure glad you could join us  for all the fun, and I sure hope you've enjoyed all the wonderful and inspirational creations you've found.  PLEASE tell me that you've left comments as you've hopped along, because there's $150 worth of gift certificates at stake!  Yes, you heard me right!  There are three $50 Peachy Keen Gift Certificates hidden along this hop.  Three of our designers will be choosing one lucky winner from the comments left on their blogs.  We don't know which three designers will be awarding a prize, so your best chance to win is to comment at each stop.  You've got plenty of time, because we won't close our hop for comments until 11:59 on Sunday, November 11th.  The winners will be announced on The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog on Monday.

Don't forget about the BIG WEEK LONG SALE!  It lasts till Monday, and we're giving away a FREE STAMP SET with every $30 order!  Get yours TODAY!!
Here are the details of the sale!
 

Below, please find a complete list of stops on the hop, just in case you want to go back for another look.  ;-)    Thanks so much for hopping with us, and I hope our creations have left you ready to do some happy stamping!

Oh Lorie! You ARE the Copic Queen! This is absolutely beautiful! I am in Awe! ~hugs, Saundra :)

Glora said...

Okay, that is such a cool technique. I totally noticed it and thought that you had somehow made your Tanner Turkey into a cut file. What an awesome technique. I'm going to have to find out what black pen you use, I don't think I've ever seen one with quite that fine of a point (or maybe it is the user). AMAZING job on your cute turkey and this technique. I LOVE it and I'm thankful for you! Hugs- Glora
