Slate, Moss, Bark, Burlap...I LOVE the sound and look of these colors! They remind me of a Pottery Barn catalog. :) These are the colors for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge, and boy, did I have fun making my card.
I used the Bird In Nest stamp from Blockheads, and stamped it with Memento ink (best for coloring with Copic markers). It was cut out with a Large Deckled Rectangle die (Spellbinders), and I inked the edges while it was still in the die.
I added Crystal glitter from Martha Stewart to the flowers, and Brownstone glitter to the nest. It doesn't show up too well in my picture; it looks like the nest has a worm infestation. ;)
Distressing the edges of the patterned paper was fun. I actually own a distressing tool now (Tim Holtz brand), instead of using my fingernail. I tore the paper in a few places, and inked the edges with Distress Inks.
Show us your earth-toned beauties this week by linking up at The Play Date Cafe. Hope to see you there!
You could win some of the Twinery's luscious twine. :)
