Broke Stampers Unite- Painted Harvest


Hello and welcome to this week's Broke Stampers Unite Challenge. This week's Theme is Stamp Set and the chosen set is called Painted Harvest #144783

This set has really been a favorite of the Holiday Catalog. I love the beautiful almost watercolor effect of these stamps. So let me get started on what I did here...

I started with a base of Early Espresso, I then took a layer of Whisper White cut to 4 x 5.25 and randomly stamped the flower images in Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler. I was hoping to get a much different look than the yellows and oranges that you normally see with this set. The centers were stamped in Early Espresso. I stamped the leaves in Always Artichoke to continue with the deep shades. Once I had my layer stamped I then inked up the inside front of the Hexagons #143231 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with some Early Espresso. Placing my stamped layer in the folder I ran it through the Big Shot to get this great almost quilted or chicken wire look. I glued the layer down on my base with some Mono Multipurpose glue...(the green glue) It makes sticking the embossed layers down so nice.

I used a length of Burlap Ribbon # 141487 with the ends cut at an angle and then the sentiment. On the sentiment I stamped it on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372 I stuck that down with some Dimensionals.
