Papercraft Star #139

Our challenge theme this week at Papercraft Star is seeds and or garden.  I had the perfect stamp, just waiting to be inked!  My stamp set is from the Buzz & Bumble Workshop on the Go Kit.  The moment I saw the kit, I knew I had to have it...just for this stamp!  Yet, I had not yet found a reason to ink it up!  I was excited to see our challenge theme!  So, this is my first card using the seed packet stamp...of which I am sure you will be seeing more of.  Here is an inspiration photo for you, you can use if you choose for the challenge theme.

 I known you have seen many of my creations with the bee themed paper...this card shows you some of the other patterns that are included in the Buzz & Bumble paper pack...not a bee to be seen!  The chicken wire background is a background stamp from the Distressed Backgrounds stamp set.  My seed packet stamp was stamped onto Colonial White cardstock and colored with Copics.  I then went over the image with Tim Holtz distress inks to give it an aged look.  To further the aging process, I distressed and inked the edges in Cocoa ink.  In keeping with the rustic theme, I added jute ribbon and a wooden button.

I kept the inside blank to leave room for a handwritten sentiment .

  6. Allisa I do like the rustic look to this card. I like how you stamped the chicken wire to the designer paper. I often don't think to do that and limit myself by using papers as they are in the pack. Thank you for the inspiration!
