Here's a card for Hels Sunday Stamper challenge week 248 where the theme is to use SOMETHING NEW.
Well a week or two ago I won a set of Spring Foliage stamps from Glenda at Chocolate Baroque so this is a good opportunity to get them mounted and cut up. The tag background is a mix of Bundled Sage, Shabby Shutters and Old Paper Distress Inks and I've used the catkins and other foliage - some stamped in Bundled Sage and some gold embossed. I've just added a little colour with Inktense Pencils and a waterbrush and finished it with the Tim Holtz sentiment and some gold ribbon.
I'm also entering this in the new Papermill Challenge which is Spring/Easter designs - I've mounted the tag on cream linen card (bought from http://papermilldirect.co.uk/) and stamped some foliage in Bundled Sage in the background. Redanne reminded me of this technique with her recent poppy card.
Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments!!
