Tag Tuesday - Christmas Colors: Navy, Turquoise, Red And Thanksgiving Postcard

We're starting the Christmas Season at Kard Krazy! Louise chose the first colors of Christmas to be Navy,Turquoise and Red. It was fun to pull out the Christmas things and start dreaming up ideas.

I decoupaged navy and turquoise tissue scraps to a tag, stamped with a Christmas tree design, and attached an embossed gold over red scrap on one side. I made the ornament from a round tag with watercolor paint, Golden gel medium, small puffy gold star, gold pen and red fibers. It's topped off with a red and gold bow with a spiral in the center.

Hope all the artists who post at Kard Krazy have a Happy Thanksgiving!

And to acknowledge Thanksgiving here in the USA, I made a postcard for Sunday Postcard Art where the theme is just for that holiday this week.

I covered a 4 x 6 card with copies of old newsprint, did a gel transfer of an image from a Thanksgiving postcard I have from 1909, added rubber stamping, distress inks, watercolor, tiny brad and Gold Leaf pen around the sides which doesn't show up very well in the scan. Thanks to the folks at Sunday Postcard Art for hosting a challenge for a US holiday!
