Welcome to day one of our blog hop!  This month my theme is a technique....graduated colors.  For this technique I used acrylic blocks and inks for my colors.  Today we are showcasing I am Thankful stamp set that is full of fall sayings and two fun images.  

My scarecrow card is done with inking acrylic block then over stamp images with black ink.  Turkey card is done with pieces of leftover rubber on an acrylic block. 
Please continue to check out Janine's blog to see her thankful projects.
