I'm so excited to get to share what I came up with for our first Papertrey Posse challenge! Jessica is our June Posse challenge hostess, and she came up with this lovely sketch for us to work with:
SO many possibilities! I ended up making two very different cards. First is this sympathy card. I thought the large, 3-tree image from Through the Trees would be perfect in that circle as a focal point. Then just lots of matting and layering.
The next card has a whole different look, from the same sketch.
How cute is that little fox?? That's an Imaginesce stamp that I picked up ages ago, but it was still unopened! Until I discovered Copics, I just never found a way to use it. I colored him and cut him out (tip: after I carefully cut him out, I inked around the edges, which covered up the little bits of white here and there from my imperfect cutting job). The background yellow grid paper was from my stash, and the blue is Bazzill smoothie cardstock stamped with Background Basics: Geometrics. Now, see that scalloped circle? I punched it from tan cardstock, but it felt like it needed a little something. So, I stamped around the edge in each scallop using a small leaf from Beautiful Blooms 2. It doesn't look at all like a leaf; I just liked how the rounded end of the leaf fit nicely into each scallop!
I hope you've enjoyed these, and be sure to check out the rest of the Posse gals' creations! A link to each of their blogs can be found in my sidebar, or go to our group blog here. Have a wonderful day!
