I've been wanting to try out my new die and thought today's sketch would be perfect if I flipped it. I had prepared some bg paper to use up a bunch of scraps leftover from making book page trees-I used ModPodge to layer the scraps on cardstock then put a thin coat of Gesso over that. I stamped this with the Grunge spatter in the 3 main colors and sponged a bit of Artichoke and Suede as well. I used the spatter on my berries and the lines on my leaves. I crumpled and sponged these as well. I used seam binding for my banner elements and a strip of woodgrain dp that I sponged along the edges. I used rhinestones for my accents and also added some under my sentiment which is stamped in craft ink.
