Colorful Horn of Plenty

Happy Thursday! For those of you in the states, we have one more week until Thanksgiving. It is interesting, not too many people sent out Thanksgiving cards, yet they make perfect Hostess gifts. Over the last several years I have hosted Thanksgiving, but not this year. I will be going to my Mom's house, and I will be giving her this little card as a way of saying "Thank You" and "Happy Thanksgiving."

I have made this card several times using different colors of alcohol ink. Each card turns out just a little differently. The alcohol inks shine on glossy paper and the image looks great with all the colors.
The paper I used was from DCWV called Rustic Stack

Here is another one with slightly different colors, similar layout, but a completely different card. This one has more of a warm tone to it.

The sentiment is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles and is a perfect sentiment for this card.

What I love about alcohol inks is there is no right or wrong. You just combine different colors until you get the desired look you want. Simple yet beautiful!
