Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge is “Thankful”.  Usually the challenge is only for one week but this week was extended to two.

Someone said the only reason a craft room gets cleaned is so that one can rediscover all the great stuff that you forgot that you had.  This is very true for me.  Yesterday I rearranged how I stored some basic paper.  During this rearrangement, I found some Tim Holtz Glassine paper.  I hadn’t used this paper for quite some time, but remembered that if you crunched it up, it cracked in lines and accepted Distress Inks very well.  This looked particularly nice on diecut fall leaves. With the “Thankful” theme of the challenge, I thought today would be a good time to use it again.  I like when old things become new again though, so I decided to use Distress Paint instead and give them a shimmery coat of Pico Irresistable Embellisher to the painted leaves.

I think the resulting card looks great!
