Hello friends! It's been a while since I played along with PTI's Make it Monday challenge, so I made a little time for it after work yesterday.
This week's challenge is to make a background using a non-background stamp. I chose a branch image from Turning a New Leaf.
The branch was stamped repeatedly onto Rustic White cardstock using ink that is a close match to Melon Berry. I added some scattered berries (from Harvest Berries) in burgundy.
The panel was adhered to a Scarlet Jewel base, and a punched Ripe Avocado border was added along the right edge.
I chose a sentiment from Healing Touch Sentiments and a frame from Mat Stack 1 Collection and stamped them onto the coordinating mat stack. A die cut branch frames the sentiment, and a strip of scored Scarlet Jewel cardstock helps to ground the sentiment panel.
The design seemed a little heavy on the left side, so the Ripe Avocado button was added for balance.
