Ciao a tutti! Simon ci suggerisce oggi di pensare al giorno del Ringraziamento che si sta avvicinando! Anche per noi in Italia, pur non festeggiandolo, trovo che sia una bella occasione per pensare a ciò di cui essere grati nella nostra vita!

Thanksgiving will soon be here, so this challenge is dedicated to being thankful for all of our families and our friends. We all need a good supply of Thank You/Thanksgiving cards but you might also like to make some Thanksgiving decorations and table settings, we will be looking forward to seeing your creations!

Dedico  questo lavoro , una busta e la sua tag abbinata,  alla mia famiglia, sicuramente la cosa più importante della mia vita! Senza il loro supporto e la loro pazienza non riuscirei ad essere quello che sono! Ho voluto esprimere con i colori questo Grazie!
Ho sfruttato l'effetto positivo/negativo giocando con colori caldi e autunnali. Le foglie grandi sono colorate con Alcohol ink mentre le foglie piccole e gli sfondi con Distress spray.
Per dare una leggera texture ho aggiunto la Ranger Texture Paste Transparent Gloss utilizzata con lo stencil Tiles di Tim Holtz.

The challenge of  this week made me think about the most important things in my life.  For me, certainly the family is the most important.  With this project I wanted to express my gratitude through the colors!! I hope you  can feel this  looking  my work!
I have used the positive / negative effect playing with warm, autumn colors. The large leaves are painted with ink Alcohol, the small leaves and backgrounds with Distress spray.
I added a light texture using Ranger Texture Paste Transparent Gloss mixed  with the stencil Tiles by Tim Holtz.

Come tutte le settimane vi ricordo che partecipando alla nostra sfida potrete vincere un buono a estrazione di 50$ da spendere sul favoloso store! Questa volta  non avete scuse: la sfida dura due settimane!  Ora tocca a voi, colori alla mano e create!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.
This challenge will run for two weeks giving you a bit of extra time!
So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
