It's always fun to case a designer for PTI CAWU. Several cards caught my eye & I've made 3 so far.
Michelle's fun rainbow tree on day 3 gave me the idea to try an image from Ombre Builders, but just using green ink.
Kind of fun, but not sure anyone would know it's a tree.
Next I cased one of Dawn's cards on Day 2. For the foliage I used the Meadow Greens ferns with several images from Spruce & Sprigs.
The panel is Aqua Mist & the inks are New Leaf, Aqua Mist, Vintage Jadeite & Olive Twist. I wasn't happy with my stamping on one side, but salvaged it by cutting the panel smaller. The sentiment from Take 3 Winter was stamped in Olive Twist, matching the card front. Hard to see, but the berries are covered in Stickles.
My final card & the one I'm entering in CAWU was inspired by Laurie's Day 1 card using black & gray with a pop of red--so striking! I plan to try it with trees, but for this card I used the same layout & images as my last card stamping in Soft Stone, Weathervane, Smokey Shadow & Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy.
The Soft Stone panel was die cut with Scallop Stackers: Small. I saw it upside down on my table & decided I liked it. The sentiment from Snowflake Flurries was stamped in Smokey Shadow, matching the card front. This time I covered the berries in Christmas Red Stickles. I'm also entering Stamping Sensations & Time Out.
