Eat Ham!

When I saw this stamp in the Inkadinkado catalog I just knew I had to have it! Isn't he just too adorable?

The stamp is called Eat Ham! I stamped it on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The image was colored with Tombow markers and a blender pen. I slightly distressed the edges with a Paper Distresser , then inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink just to add a little depth.

I am really proud of myself here....I zig zagged the center panel to my card using brown thread and my Janome Sew Mini. I really do like the texture it adds to the card. I'm a texture girl! LOL!

So, I will probably send a few Thanksgiving cards this year. I have some friends who I know will get a real chuckle out of this one!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Tomorrow is Monday...another week full of new challenges!

Thanks so much for stopping by. And have a great day!
