First, huge CONGRATS to Dawn (flowergal36) for being yesterday's Featured Stamper on SCS. Not only do I love Dawn's gallery, but she's a sweetheart too. I chose THIS CARD of hers to CASE. I went with the layout, layered ribbon, and incorporated plaid in the DP. I used different stamps, colors, and added a sentiment on the front.
My friend Tosh stamped some of these Northwoods Pinecone images for me. Thanks again, Tosh!! She stamped this one on watercolor paper. I watercolored it with reinkers and then added some Cinnamon Brown Twinkling H20's on the pinecones for a little shimmer. The edges of the main image and sentiment are sponged with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The main panel was faux stitched with my piercing tool, mat pack, and a Chocolate Chip marker....then the whole thing is popped up on Dimensionals. The sentiment was cut out using my Spellbinders Double Ended Tags and it was popped up on a second layer of Dimensionals.
The Northwoods Pinecone stamp and the Spellbinders double Ended Tags are both available at Stamper's Dream.
