w&w February Release: Day 2

Hi folks! Welcome to day 2 of the new Winnie & Walter release!


The Scenery: Into the Woods set has all your wood graining and birch tree-ing needs covered, with large negative and positive versions to stretch the entire length of your card. As large as this over-sized set is, though, I somehow focused in on the small knot in the woodgrain for both of my cards today. Sometimes that's what happens when I stare and squint at sets thinking of how I'm going to use them. I totally saw "candle flame" in that small knot.

 
I stamped that section of the woodgrain in four different colors of orange cardstock, cut them out, and layered them together.  For the wick I used a silver thread, which now I see on the enlarged photo that I should have done a better job gluing to the base of the flame! The full version of the woodgrain runs down the right side of the card.


For this card, I still focused on that knot in the wood, but only cut one layer for each element. The various sections are watercolored randomly with a tiny brush, and then arranged in a V pattern. I like the contrast of the bright colors in small doses with the sparkly gold sequins, and the gray distressed paper. The "happy birthday" sentiment on both cards is from an older set called Winter Woodland. Here I bent the sentiments slightly to follow the curve of the paper.

  16. Before even reading your post, Kelly, the first thing I thought when I saw the flame was that it looked like a tree knot. Way to show us how to look at our stamps differently.
