I had a lot of fun with this week's make it monday challenge for papertrey ink, to use a die cut as a stencil. I used the hexagon cover plate as a stencil for my background :)
I die cut the cover plate from masking paper and stuck it down to a piece of rustic cream cardstock. I used my ink blending tool to ink up the background with spring moss, simply chartreuse, ripe avocado, and pinefeather inks. I took the mask off and trimmed the paper down and adhered it to the antique gold paper. I die cut the pinecones and branch out of rustic cream cardstock and stamped them with new leaf and ripe avocado ink for the branch and dark chocolate ink for the pinecones. I glued that down to the background and then die cut the word from antique gold paper and glued that down over the pinecone branch. I added glossy accents to the word and rock candy stickles to the pinecones and branches to add some texture. I finished the card off with some sequins and some button twine at the top!
I stayed up super late this morning so I could finish this card after staying up to watch the debate (and then I wasted another hour reading tweets about #debatenight)....so sleepy zZzZzZ!
I'm dreaming of the day I can catch up on sleep, maybe next year?!
Have a great day!
