Rustic is right up my alley so of course I had to make a card for Merry Monday.
The wood is a background stamp from Altenew that I stamped on watercolor paper in both Gathered Twigs and Black Soot Distress Inks, brushing with water in between. The wreath from WPlus9 is stamped in four layers with a little watering to give it a softer look, except for the red embossed berries. It took a while to come up with a way to do a sentiment. I was going to hang another piece of wood from the bow with a stamped sentiment but that didn't feel quite right. Enter the TH word dies. Both the word and bow are tripled embossed in Liquid Platinum. Now that I'm looking at it I wish I'd done a burlap bow of some kind but it would have to be tiny burlap, or maybe jute. Well, too late now. The challenge is closing soon and I don't have time for a redo. Maybe it will be a 'do another'. ;)
Thanks for dropping by. I hope your weekend is off to a good start.
