Thanksgiving Tag

I did this tag for a Prima Doll Thanksgiving Tag swap.  I love Thanksgiving because of the fall colors.  Mostly, I love it it because it is a reminder of how blessed I am.

I only have 3 of the Prima Dolls by Julie Nutting but I chose the one with the peasant dress because I thought the colors would go well with dress.  I don't know why.

I colored her using distress markers and copics.  I did the skin with the Copics and the rest with Distress Markers.  I wanted to use the Distress Markers for all of it because I do like that watercolor look. But skin using Distress Markers come out looking washed out so I am still experimenting with them. I have to find the right color combo for skin.

I fussy cut the dress from pattern paper by My Mind's Eye and then added shadows with the markers.  I also added some Victorian Velvet Distress Glitter which a nice vintage look. I added Glossy Accents to the Headband and the shoes.

The background paper is from Prima Sunrise, Sunset line.  I spritzed a little Tattered Angels Mist and then added some leaves and a sentiment: Give thanks and in all things be grateful.  The leaves and the sentiment are from Stampin' Up.  The green ribbon is from Making Memories.  The twine and ribbon are from my stash.  The ribbon was a bright yellow color but it just did not go with the muted tones in the tag so I dyed it with Mustard Seed Distress Marker.  That toned down the ribbon and it goes much better now :)

I decided to enter my tag in:
