Starting with a Wreath.......
Have you ever gotten a plan in your head and it haunts you until it can come true? That is what happened with me this week. I was looking around my craft room and seeing all of the stamps set I own that have little stamps includes. It seems I always use the main images, but never the extras. I decided to resolve that issue, after watching many videos on the Gina K. Wreath Builder Template. I purchased a set from a lady who was selling her's on FB... Gee, wonder why she would part with it? It arrived and I went to try it out. It was then I realized my Misti was too small!!!! Since I have a sweet hubby, he did not give me grief about buying a new size. Well, that too has arrived and I finally got to play. I used a stamp set from Altenew, called Parrot Paradise. Oh, that was fun!
My inks are Nuvo Hybrid inks, and since the rounded leaf was quite solid, it stamped a bit mottled, which I think added to the texture. The parrot was colored with Copic markers, and popped up with foam. I used a die cut for my sentiment in matte gold and designer paper from Webster's Pages. I have hoarded those papers for years! All that was left, was to add gems for a bit of sparkle.
I would like to enter this at Little Red Wagon #503...Which is Much Ado About Nothing. Do not make a card for a specific holiday.
This will also go over to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is Anything Goes.
We are in the grip of a heat wave and stamping has been a big part of the last couple days. Hope all is well in your little part of the world, and thanks for stopping by. Sorry if I was windy, but I am hooked on these new tools!
