Happy August! Can you believe how fast this summer has been flying by? The first of the month means that it is time for the Papertrey Ink senior design team challenge. This month, we are revisiting the Meadow Greens set:
Meadow Greens is a set I tend to reach for pretty often. I love the foliage images in the set because they work so well for so many different kinds of cards - especially for a masculine theme/look. I played around with emboss resist and blending techniques to create some unique patterned papers to use on the projects that I am sharing today.
I created a patterned paper for this card with the fear images in the set. I embossed them with clear embossing powder onto a map patterned paper from the Road Trip patterned paper collection and then applied Ripe Avocado and Pinefeather ink over the top of the embossed images with an ink blender.
I love the sentiments in this set and I paired the "your kindness..." sentiment with a Big Basics: Thanks die cut in kraft cardstock.
For this card, I created my own patterned paper on while cardstock first by blending Ripe Avocado and Pinefeather inks on white cardstock and then stamped onto that with the Circle Scribbles set. I let that dry completely and then stamped and embossed the leaves with clear embossing powder over the top.
I applied Pinefeather, Dark Chocolate, and Smokey Shadow inks over the top of the embossed images and that made the color and patterns really show up through the embossed leaves. I added the sentiment on a kraft cardstock circle popped up just a bit on the stamped patterned paper background that I created.
The Papertrey Ink August release will be here before you know it - thank you so much for stopping by today!
