I made a mixed media Thanksgiving card for my Mom using Prima's Amber Moon papers and Tim Holtz Pumpkin Patch Bigz die cuts as my focal point.
I die cut two of the papers using the largest Tim's Stitched Rectangles die. For the wood plank panel, I tore off the serrated edges and both panels were colored to match my background panel using Distress Oxides. I chose two of the smaller panels in the pad for my sentiment, and these were also colored with Distress Oxides.
To make my background panel, I used one of my trusty canned cat food thin chipboard inserts and applied Grit paste and clear crackle paste randomly and smooshed some sequins into the wet paste. I allowed this to dry overnight and then gave it a coat of gesso. Later I painted it with Distress paints and spritzed them with water to blend. I dried with a heat tool and allowed it to dry still more overnight. The sequins started popping off, so I thought it would be a good idea to give the entire panel a coat of Distress Collage Medium, and I used the Matte mixed with just a bit of Vintage for subtle color. Finally I rubbed Distress crayon over it and wiped to leave it to highlight the cracks and texture.
The little pumpkin is one of Linda's charms from the shop; I just added a bit of Distress crayon to highlight it. The ribbon is from the little goodie bag Linda includes as a thank you gift in all of her orders. I just pulled the looped end through the bail of the charm and tied up the ends.
I threw just about everything I own at the pumpkin die cuts. I started by dipping them in Antique Linen Distress Oxide, then added random smudges of Distress Micro Glaze. Again, back to the dipping into puddles of diluted oxides in pumpkin colors drying between colors. After they were completely dry, I smeared on clear crackle paste randomly and allowed that to dry. I rubbed the crayons to highlight the cracks.
To finish it off, I added a single Seasonal Chit Chat sticker edged with crayon.
