Earth Tones Wreath

Hi guys

Just a super quick post tonight to share a card I've made for this week's challenge at Less is More where they have a colour challenge to use 'Earth Tones'.

These are not colours that I generally reach for but I really quite like how this card turned out.  Apologies for the photography, the battery died on my camera so I took these on my mobile so not the best!



I used some coloured cardstock to create the card base for this one, something else I don't usually reach for as I don't have a lot of good quality coloured cardstock in my stash.  I then cut a white panel slightly smaller and used a circular die to lightly mark a circle in pencil.  I then roughly planned out a design using individual stamps from a set by Uniko Studio, and worked my way around the circle.  I finished with a central sentiment before ensuring the ink was dry (I used pigment ink) so I could erase the pencil marks.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Uniko Studio - Background Builders: Vines; Woodware - Salutations
  • Ink: Versa Color - Sand Beige, Paprika, Bisque, Umber, Bamboo, Green Tea; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Cardstock: Colour - Stampin' Up; White - Neenah Classic Crest

I would also like to link this card up at the following challenge:

Charisma Cardz - Challenge #15 - Anything Goes


That's all from me today, I'll be back in a day or two with more to share.
