U of O Ducks beat Cal at home (Eugene, Or) in the pouring down rain and wind. I was so inspired, while listening to the game on the radio and watching our Oregon Coast rain and wind that..........another Thanksgiving TLC35 (faux linen) card just happened! I smeared with TP 6 classic colors across glossy white CS and then swiped with 100 wt sandpaper. It gave it a canvas like linen look. I then stamped my trees with A Artichoke masking and stamping off the trees to get a 3 dimensional look. I used my Itty Bitty BG stamp and smeared a little as I stamped to get the dots to look like "big" raindrops. A really fun and easy card to make. The swiped colors for the linen BG were inspired by one of Jeanne S's incredible linen cards. Enjoy!

Oh, my gosh, Nancy--what a beautiful background! The more I look at it, the more I've decided it looks like a lake behind the trees and that yellowish strip is the bank on the far side, then the gray sky on the horizon. The linen gives a really cool look of texture and shading. Wow! Outstanding!
