Mon. Aug. 15, 2011 Branching Out

I really like this stamp set from Melanie (Gina K Designs), since it can be used for so many different types of cards. I decided to make this one a Birthday card, but could also make a soothing sympathy card too. I used Gina K Pumpkin Spice and Chocolate cs.  For the background, I inked the stamp with multiple colors of ink, kind of thumped with the ink pads, and then randomly stamped.  I like the different shades on the leaves. I used a scallop nestie and a lacey circle behind the focal image.  The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn Design- love this one! I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed with Platinum EP.
I thought a touch of twine would balance the design.

Glad you stopped by today!
