VLVAug03


This weeks Viva La Verve sketch challenge with a twist is to add a tag. I stamped the white cardstock base with various leaf images in caramel, beige and close to cocoa, all stamped off once. The leaf is a Nestabilities die cut (a Christmas gift from my DDIL) done on Kraft. I rubbed several colored inkpads all over it, and spritzed it with water. After it dried, I still wasn't happy with it, so I got out 3 tiny pots of H20's and painted here and there. After it was dry, I curled the portions around my cutting knife to give it dimension, and popped it up on foam tape. The acorns were also a diecut, and I rubbed them with a brown inkpad to add some color. The dsp is by PTI, the panel is Chocolate chip, punched with an EK small scallop border punch and the orange ribbon and brown twill are from my stash. The sentiment tag was hand cut and stamped with a Paper Store stamp (thanks Heidi). I added some brown yarn and fibers with an eyelet. If you click the picture, you might see the tiny topaz colored bling on the chocolate chip panel too!
Speaking of Heidi, has anyone seen her lately? Helloooooooo??? echo.........echo.......echo..........
