5 for 5 Blog Hop Event: Thanksgiving - Day 1

I'm happy to say that the 5 for 5 Gang is back with another fun Blog Event. Who is the 5 for 5 gang you ask? Well, we are 5 crafty friends getting together and creating 5 Holiday themed projects for 5 consecutive days. Our last Blog Event was Halloween 2015, and we are so excited to be back!! We have a blast creating projects for you and inspiring you to create along with us!! We use whatever we have in our stash and just have fun!
Welcome to Day 1 of our latest 5 for 5 Blog Hop Event. The event runs from November 9th (today) to November 13th and is Thanksgiving inspired.  
 
 
 
Each day we will base our projects on a theme. Today's theme is WATERCOLORS.  I created a card using the ADORABLE Lawn Fawn "Thankful Mice" stamps and die set. I thought I would create a tree of cheese and have the adorable mice next to the tree. Here's my card ...
I stamped and die cut several cheeses from Distress Watercolor Cardstock and water colored them with Distress Inks. I water colored the background and the mice with Distress Inks also. For some sparkle I dotted glossy accents onto the sky and sprinkled glitter on them while they were wet.
Here's a close up of the water coloring ...
The star is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Mirrored Stars and I used Mushroom Alcohol Ink to color it.
Please be sure to sop by all the 5 for 5 designer's blogs today and check out the fun Thanksgiving projects! Hopefully we will inspire you to create some Thanksgiving projects to give or keep for yourself!!
