I've been working on this card for the last 4-5 days as I kept getting interrupted. At least I finished in time this month to enter the always inspiring PTI Blog Hop Challenge.
I love wreaths & my last PTI order included the new Twig Wreath stamps & dies. My inspiration came from the wreath being one that isn't solid leaves & the Fall colors. It was so much fun to stamp the wreath & various other images in the set. You don't have to be exact--sort of on the order of collage stamping (which I'm not good at) but this was very forgiving since you have the wreath as a starting point.The inks are Memento Rich Cocoa, Northern Pine, Morocco & Peanut Brittle. The berries are second generation with Frost White--could have done them full strength I see now. The sentiment from the set is heat embossed after stamping in Encore Metallic Champagne. The slight shadow effect is done with the Rich Cocoa. The flowers are die cut from an off white felt & are attached together & to the panel with my very old copper brads. I added some white & brown splatters & made the little striped strip with the same inks using the narrow image from Watercolor Wonder. Finished off with some twine. I can't wait to make more cards with this set! Lots to see, so I'm off to check out the hop. My stamping lets me enter at SSS Monday & with no designer paper I'll join in at SSS Wednesday. Haven't entered a Uniko challenge in awhile, so heading over there. The first challenge at ChouxChoux Paper Arts includes Fall cards, so this will be my second entry. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
