Happy New Year, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I am excited to host the January 2020 Inspiration Challenge! I love my neighborhood and surroundings where we have a wonderful wooded backyard and gardens. This month's inspiration photo was taken right from my front yard in the late fall. I adore the deep rich color combo of the berries and greens.
I started out with stamping a background with Dot Botanicals Stamp Set. I love the ease of using this set and stamped the leaves in various colors: Frayed Leaf, Hunter Green, Snapdragon, Pale Mauve, and Grape Agate.
To accentuate the purple, I highlighted the purple with the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set.
Once I was happy with the stamping, I ran the entire stamped piece with Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die. Instantly, my stamped background has interest and textures! For the sentiment, I applied the gorgeous Gilded Ombre Washi Tape over white cardstock and die cut it with Miss You Word Die.
I strongly encourage you to try this color combo and create something unique! Your projects can be floral, graphic, CAS or layered…. sky is the limit! I look forward to checking out your creations! Thanks so much for stopping by!
