Our challenge theme this week at Papercraft Star is seeds and or garden. I had the perfect stamp, just waiting to be inked! My stamp set is from the Buzz & Bumble Workshop on the Go Kit. The moment I saw the kit, I knew I had to have it…just for this stamp! Yet, I had not yet found a reason to ink it up! I was excited to see our challenge theme! So, this is my first card using the seed packet stamp…of which I am sure you will be seeing more of. Here is an inspiration photo for you, you can use if you choose for the challenge theme.
I known you have seen many of my creations with the bee
themed paper…this card shows you some of the other patterns that are
included in the Buzz & Bumble paper pack…not a bee to be seen!
The chicken wire background is a background stamp from the
Distressed Backgrounds stamp set. My seed packet stamp was stamped onto
Colonial White cardstock and colored with Copics. I then went over the
image with Tim Holtz distress inks to give it an aged look. To further
the aging process, I distressed and inked the edges in Cocoa ink. In
keeping with the rustic theme, I added jute ribbon and a wooden button.
I kept the inside blank to leave room for a handwritten sentiment .
