Here's another post for the PTI blog hop and CAS-ual Friday's Over the Edge
This time I've used a different color palette:
After seeing all the cool projects with the new sweater stamp from PTI I was so excited to try it out. I thought it would be fun to cut along the stitches to make a knitted tree. The linen texture is on there, must be bad lighting today because you can't see it.
For the sentiment I stamped it once in the same Simply Chartreuse color as the tree trunk, and then flipped it around to stamp in Aqua Mist in the empty spaces. Like a jigsaw puzzle. I think it makes a nice grounding element for the tree, and then if you look closer you might be surprised that it's actually the sentiment.
Here's my first version, with the Simply Chartreuse on the top of the tree instead of the fussy-cut, embossed white star. The one with the star has a more ombre effect, and this one is a little more defined with the greens on the top and bottom. Not that I'm overly analytical or anything : )
Thanks for looking!
