happy monday:) this is for this weeks challenge ,which is family inspired, over at the TKJ. im telling ya its the best place to get your kraft papers etc at great prices and super fast shipping. plus great inspiration there too.
for my card i used kraft cardstock for the base, the dark brown paper is SU chocolate chip and the green is coordinations which i tore around the top and bottom edges revealing the lighter green core. i added some twill tying tape (purchased from TKJ) along the left edge.
for the leaves i cut them out in ivory cardstock, using my cuttlebug. i inked the color on with colorbox fluid chalk. i use various colors of greens, reds and yellows, just inking until i get the look im satisfied with. i used a pica micron pen ( from michaels) to add veins to the leaves. then just bend and roll the leaves to try to make them look realistic. i adhered two of them with pop dots.
the sentiment is a stamp from creative visions(one family CV0057) i added bakers twine ( purchased from TKJ) and tiny rhinestones. i also used a metal photo turn which i added a felt topped brad to.thanks so much for stopping in today and as always your comments much appreciated. XXXshelly
