Take out Thursday: Colored Pencils on Kraft

 Welcome to Take Out Thursday 

When I serve up something simple and easy.
Take out a stamp set for a spin, spice it up.

One of my reasons for Take Out Thursday is to use a 
set or product without having to re-invent the wheel.
Take Out food is not gourmet, it is fun! 
Designed to get you out of the kitchen quickly.

Hello friends! 
Today for Takeout I picked up this design that I colored last March when we were gone for a few days. It's been--yes, you guessed it, sitting on my craft table! 

I must begin by saying that colored pencils are a difficult media for me to use. I really appreciate the beautiful results others achieve but believe me, I am very much a beginner here. I gave it a try after seeing THIS gorgeous card by Debbie Hughes. 

Now Takeout sometimes means a CASE by my definition. 

I die cut the panel into an oval. Running white card stock through my Gemini Jr with the embossing folder that came with it ( from Crafter's Companion) gave me this deeply etched design. I just love this texture!

I added details and stitching lines with a white gel pen and wrapped linen thread as a simple accent.

The stamps are from the Bouquet of Thanks set from Simon Says Stamp. 
Thanks for visiting today!
