MFP Blog Hop Day 1

Hello! Welcome to Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company's November Blog Hop!
This month's New Stamp Set Releases are
Peaceful Nuthatch
A Trip to Lancaster
What a Fox

Today we are showcasing the set titled
"Peaceful Nuthatch"

and below is my sample for you:

"Peaceful Nuthatch" set by MFP
Bow Easy by Posi-Bendr
sheer ribbon & papers by MFP
Tuxedo black dye ink by Memento
White pen by Inkssentials

I did the background by smearing white gesso over red cardstock and then smearing green-dyed
gesso over that after it dried.  This allows all 3 colors to be visible.
Thanks for looking!

Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win one of the above stamp sets! Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one), each day! We will announce all three winners on Thanksgiving Day. You can go back and comment if you missed a day. The winners will be chosen at 11PM EST on Wednesday November 23, 2011.
