Hello Dear Friends!
I hope you're having a fabulous Friday!
Pretty quiet around here today so I thought I'd check out Paper Playful and find a few challenges I could combine and create a card to share with you. Here's what I've come up with . . .
The challenges I chose to join in today are:
For my 'stripe' element, I cut a 1-1/2" strip from a very OLD 12x12 Fall striped designer paper.
My sentiment is from (one of my favorites) Pink Fresh Studios 'Perfect Sentiments' stamp & die set.
For the 'any shape die' element, I've used an oak leaf & a maple leaf from a very OLD Spellbinder die set.
After die cutting my leaves, I used Tim Holtz Distress & Distress Oxide inks to color ... using sponge daubers ... then once colored, I ran them through the die again to set the 'veins' in the leaves. Very happy with how they turned out.
Quick ... Easy ... and now I have a note card to send to a friend whom I haven't seen for quite some time. I think she'll be surprised!
