I love playing along with The Playdate Cafe color challenges. They always put together colors I wouldn't normally gravitate to. This week the challenge is Green, White, and Brown.
The photo looked really clean to me, so I ran with it :)
Charlene Austin (head over to her blog to see her amazing work) had a card with this gorgeous text heart. She had stamped thank you multiple times using different styles of stamps. I wanted to create something similar and this was my jumping off point, hehe!
I used the friend definition background stamp (Hero Arts) and stamped on white card stock in walnut stain. I cut out my heart and inked my edges in more walnut stain. I sewed around the border with brown thread.
I have some label shapes that I love problem is they are all cream, pink, and black :( I decided to make the tags to suit my color combo by cutting them apart, tracing them and reassembling the tag on my card. I started off with just white card stock. The next level is kraft with a brown faux stitch border. The top piece is colored with shabby shutters and outline with an olive marker. I outlined the olive with the thin end of my brown marker. I adhered the tag flat to a kraft card base.
To create my leaf embellishment I stamped (Delicate Leaf Clusters, Hero Arts) in shabby shutters and peeled paint. Before I stamped I spritzed with a little bit of water. I cut the leaves out and covered them in glossy accents. I adhered it left of center on my heart and added a brown floss bow. I popped the whole heart up on foam.
To finish off the card I drew a straight line 1/4 in from the sides using a thin brow marker. Then added the sentiment (All Occasion Messages, Hero Arts) in walnut stain.
Thanks for coming by and visiting! Hope you are enjoying your Tuesday evening :) I'm off to watch some TV with my hubby!!
