...Triple Challenge {LSC129, SC69, CC78}



Hey guys! Sorry for being away so long, but I have been working like a mad woman to get some craft show projects done. I'm, actually, not even finished yet! But I wanted to share something with you that I have recently done. This is my submission for three challenges...my first ever triple challenge! The colors used are Ruby Red, Elegant Eggplant, and Old Olive. I used the retired set "Thanksgiving Blessings"; I wanted a fall card, but it evolved into a Thanksgiving one instead! All of the images are embossed. The vine in the background is in olive, the sentiment is in eggplant, and the basket of fruit is embossed in dark brown. I watercolored the focal image, then used a couple of lighter colors to shade behind and under the basket for a little more dimension. The background shading doesn't show up very well in the photo, but you can click on it for a better look.

Thanks for checking in on me, and I hope to get finished with these other things before too long, so keep checking back for updates! I have several pictures to take today, so maybe I can upload some stuff tomorrow. Until then...Hugs ~ Mercy
