I created this card for the current sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch (CTS6).
I started with a brown card stock base and a piece of Natural White card stock. I stamped my flower stems with Ancient Page Pine, then added the flower heads with Memento Rhubarb Stalk. I wanted my sentiment to have a slightly darker hue than my stems, so I inked the stamp first with Memento Rich Cocoa, then inked over that with Ancient Page Pine to create a subtle difference. I also inked the edges of the panel with Memento Rich Cocoa to bring out the brown shade in the sentiment.
I wanted to use a piece of very light gold card stock behind my stamped panel but I didn't have one that was long enough (this piece came from a grab bag and it is just lovely in person). I ran it through my Big Shot in the Swiss Dots folder, then cut it in the middle and adhered it to my card base with a gap to make it "stretch" to the necessary length. I covered up the gap by adhering my stamped piece over it with Stampin' Dimensionals.
