Painted Harvest in Sepia

I did not initially order the set Painted Harvest but I've seen so many beautiful cards I had to get it.  It just arrived and I couldn't wait to play.  No, Stampin' Up! doesn't have a new color called sepia but this color combo made me think of a vintage photograph in sepia.

In real life the colors are a bit more muted.  I used Soft Suede and Memento Tuxedo Black for the flowers and leaves and stamped on a Whisper White panel. I used masks to give the flowers dimension. The leaves are stamped off once, otherwise I felt they were too dark.  I used the direct to paper method and dragged my Crumb Cake ink pad across the panel left to right, then right to left, top to bottom, and finally bottom to top.

I stamped the dots randomly all over, added 3 Gold Faceted Gems  and tied some Linen Thread onto one side

I added some shimmer to the centers using the Clear Wink of Stella, cause I love that pen!

The card base is Soft Suede and there is a Basic Black layer behind the white panel.

While I didn't use the coordinating punch for this project you can get the punch and the stamp set as a bundle and save some money!  

Thanks for looking!  When you order this bundle (you know you want it) be sure to use my September Host Code7A7FWZ4W when shopping from my online store.  If your order is $150 in product you do not need to use it as you would qualify for Host benefits!

Happy stampin!
