The First Thanksgiving (my hubby thinks I have way too Much time on my hands)

Well this whole little project started when I found this post on Split Coast Stampers on how to make a Mayflower ship. You can see the post HERE I though oh I can make that and use the SUInk stamps and make little people around it.

Well I made the ship and wanted it bigger. So I scanned it into the Pazzles and made some changes to it and in larged it. I used distressing ink on it to try to make it look more really. I made the sail and thought it was a good place for the Boat stamp and I used Distressing Ink on that also. Then I made the Stamp the Pilgrims and Indians and thought oh look at the wonderful food stamps that I'm not using.

So I was trying to figure out how to make a table outta paper for the food to set on. Well what I came up with was covering a empty cigarette pack with paper and I used wooden kabob holders for the legs I just cut them done and used some distress ink on them and the the table top . So I stamp the rest of the images and cut them out I stamped some of them twice so I could layer them. I made bases for all the items just folded about a 1/4 strip of paper in a triangle to stand them all.

Stamps: SUInk Bountiful Harvest, Leaf it to Me, and Giving Thanks
Ink: Ranger Adirondack in Pitch Black, Espresso and Sunset Orange. SUInk in Rustic. Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade, Antique Linen,Tea Dye, and Vintage Photo
