It’s a good Monday in Green Bay, WI. The Packers pulled a win out of the bag yesterday. It’s amazing but the mood of the city goes the way of the Packer schedule. I’m glad to see Brett Hundley get a win. He is one of the good guys. So back to stamping. I have always enjoyed working with multi medium art. Recently I used a portion of a coffee filter on one of my cards. Today I decided to use the entire filter. I buy natural coffee filters so they are brown. I used the pine branches from the Christmas Pines stamp set inked with Wild Wasabi and Tranquil Tide inks on the center of the filter. I stamped one pine cone from the Christmas Happiness stamp set with Chocolate Chip ink. I think these pine cones are so realistic looking. I wish they had coordinating dies. Next I used Cherry Cobbler ink on the NOEL greeting. I added scattered spots with my stand by spot stamp from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set and Chocolate Chip ink. Now the fun part and maybe a little scary. Scrunch that filter into a ball. I smoothed it out and attached it to a piece of Whisper White CS. I used the Crumb Cake ink pad to go over the wrinkles in the filter to give it an even more distressed look. At my age it’s all about vintage! I added a burlap ribbon tied at one side with twine and then onto the base card of Cherry Cobbler CS. Take a look. See what you think.
PAWS TO PONDER
Hugs and happy stamping, MB
