Any Thomas Kinkaid lovers?

My friends know I enjoy Thomas Kinkaid's artwork, so imagine my excitement when Cornish Heritage Farms started to produce stamps using his images. I admit, it was a little intimidating at the thought of coloring in the entire image, but it can be done. I'm just not the one for skill level or patience, so I decided on alternative uses of this large image. I decided to use a Pumpkin Patch Specturm pad with fall colors for this card. Using only a few colors on the main image made the rest of card easy to create. I added SU! Old Olive CS for my card base and a layer of SU! Really Rust CS for another layer. I paper-pierced around the border of the card and added a SU! sentiment. Oval punches helped make my bookplate. And, after adding copper brads and cording, I had designed my first TK card, fitting for any male. So, this wasn't too hard after all. Share your TK artwork with me, as I am sure to purchase more of these beloved stamps.

BLOG CANDY-To be drawn tonight, so don't forget to spread the word.

Thanks for looking!

What a great idea, for those of us who are "coloring challenged!" I've shied away from these stamps because I know I would be disappointed in my attempts to make it look good. I certainly appreciate the idea. You come up with wonderful ideas.
