Tim Holtz Funky Foliage Thinking of You card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge
Hello today. I am showing my latest inspiration for Atlantic Hearts challenge, It's been quite a while since I really got to do some intricate paper piecing. I had carpel tunnel surgery on my left hand in June and will be doing my right in November. Therefore, my crafting has suffered. I expect to be so much better after it's all over! Anyway I locked myself in my craft room over the Labor Day weekend and really had a great time playing with this die set.
Here is the sketch.
Here is a side view of my cluster. This die set has several layers to each image. I used two different ivory papers, two different reds and three browns.
I stamped and embossed the sentiment on kraft card stock after die cutting into a pierced oval. I finished the project with adhesive brown pearls.
Here is my project with some of the products I used to create it. I purchased most of these items second hand. Surprisingly, the two inks came from my favorite store Indigo Hippo. You do have to be careful purchasing second hand inks. I also purchased the stamp set there a couple of years ago. It's been a good one.
