Papertrey Ink Meadow Greens

I don’t have a lot of sets that are “solid” images with coordinating dies, but Meadow Greens from Papertrey Ink is fabulous!  And so easy to use!  Here’s how I constructed my card: for the leaves and fern, I covered the stamp with a layer of Peeled Paint distress ink, then tapped a little Walnut around the edges, spritzed with water then stamped onto a piece of Canson watercolor paper.  For the blossom, I covered the stamp first with Fired Brick, then tapped a little Mahogany around the edges, spritzed and stamped it onto the watercolor paper.  I dried the images, then using the center piece of the flower, inked it up with Black Soot distress ink, and stamped it onto the flower.

When the images were dry, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out, and set them aside.  I used Stampin Up’s Woodland embossing folder on a piece of white card stock for the middle layer.  I then inked up Stampin Up’s Hardwood background stamp with Walnut, Gathered Twigs and Weathered Wood, spritzed with water and stamped it onto a scrap of watercolor paper. I stamped the leaves and fern over the Hardwood and then cut the oval using Gina Marie Designs Stitched Oval dies.  The base card is kraft card stock and I adhered the embossed white layer, then attached the oval and finally, layered the greenery and flower at different heights using double-stick foam tape!  The sentiment was stamped on a scrap and mounted to finish the card!
