Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday 214: Stamping with Neutrals

Dawn McVey has a wonderful video showing how to make neutral colors shine in your projects for the latest Make it Monday challenge.  Check it out here.


I decided to make a rustic card for the challenge.  I stamped Papertrey Ink's Turning a New Leaf  in Memento Rich Cocoa onto rustic cream card stock.  I just love the little flecks that add such interest to this card stock!  My PTI craft ink pad needs refilled but in this case the semi-dry pad was perfect for stamping a lighter set of leaves.  I added berries from PTI's bells and boughs in PTI scarlet jewel ink.  The sentiment is from PTI's Year Round Puns stamp set also stamped in scarlet jewel ink.  The flowers are from PTI's Honey Bees stamped in PTI melon berry ink.   This is definitely an older set but I have used the various flowers from this set over and over again.  They are just the perfect size!  The card seemed a little plain so to add some "zing" I added teeny tiny bronze beads to the center of the flowers with glossy accents. 

Thanks for looking!  Please come back again!
