First Thanksgiving guest

I finally got to get out of the house Friday, this not being able to drive is driving me crazy! The silver lining is that I have had to use what is in my stash for stamping and for playing catch up on my scrapbooks. So out of the house I went, with a designated driver (LOL) and went to Michael's, just to look for scrapbook fillers, and what to ya know........I found a set of stamps I didn't have!!!! I combined some of the smaller ones with this beautiful Indian, with gentile features, to make this tag  for Vicki's Thanksgiving inspiration challenge over at: http://cheerfulstamppad.blogspot.com/2011/10/thanksgiving-inspirations.html  I used T.Holtz distressed ink for the background colors, then layered it onto a very dark green tag.  The Indian, from Commotion Stamps, was stamped onto a light brown cs and shaded with colored pencil and markers.  I had a small down feather (from the nests in my trees) that was added over the image feather.  I used the new stamps, from Reflections, and made a semi-boarder and colored them with markers, then the Indian was layered to the side. Hope you like it as much as I do.
