This was the third project we created at workshop last weekend. I know this stamp and framelit set are about a whole lot more, but as yet I still haven’t gotten past the hydrangea. I think with fall and the holiday seasons coming I will enjoy more of the trees, but not yet.
I used the heavy weight whisper white card stock for the background. I handles the deep impressions of the embossing folders much better. Also, I had plans for spritzing some color and that would have made some warping sadness otherwise. It isn’t easy to see, but there is a light tan speckling going on there. Such an easy technique to employ.
I stamped on wisteria wonder with elegant eggplant for the different tones and accented with more elegant eggplant. The ink, thick bakers twine, and border piece were all done in elegant eggplant. It is a dark color, so I kept it under control. I didn’t sponge anything, that was a challenge to be honest. The die cutting was simple and then layered in place. The stamping was done last. It did give a bit of a crease line in the sentiment, but worth it. I worried if I stamped and then spritzed the wording would bleed and I wanted it crisp. Done.
Have a creative day!
