Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Give Thanks

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project expressing thanks to the recipient. I chose this Cornucopia image, watercolored with QoR watercolors by Golden. This was one of my board samples from this last Fall/Winter release.

The words are from the Christmas Brush Words clear set - such a fun and versatile set to work with, far beyond the holidays (also --- shh! --- a couple of companion sets are coming soon!)

I heated the ribbon lightly to form it to the curve, and let it curl a little - it takes a very light touch because of the organza center, but I love the vintage effect that gives.

Be sure to check out these other designers' blogs for inspiration -
