Wild At Heart Meets Fun Year Round!

Good evening, everyone! I would like to share with you another creation I made for my Guest Designer spot, using Wild At Heart, by Melanie Muenchinger. This set is exclusive to Gina K. Designs. I hope Mel doesn't mind, but I decided to combine her previously released set, Fun Year Round, to make this card. I was trying to do something different and eye catching. I am pleased, and I hope you will agree!I started with a base of Kraft, Pure Luxury card stock from Gina K. Designs, followed by a layer of Onyx Black Pure Luxury. I first stamped the large background stamp from Fun Year Round onto some newsprint DP that I had in my stash, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I repeated this using the large background stamp from Mel's new set, Wild AT Heart. I carefully cut out the corresponding circles that I wanted to paper piece and after applying a Quickie Glue Pen, gently set them in. I highlighted a few other circles using shades of brown Copic Marker. My sentiment was cut with Spellbinders, double matted, and popped in the center. I used a triple wrap of hemp twine around my image, and topped it off with a silver flower charm with it's loop removed.

Please take time to stop over at Melanie's blog, to see some of the awesome work she has been doing with Wild At Heart, and to view another one of my creations.
