Lets get natural

Naturally Merry Graphic
Todays beautiful new set from Flourishes is Naturally Merry.  There’s a really big and beautifully detailed pine cone that has so many possibilities…as you will see when you visit the Senior Design Team!
So, of course, I stamped the pine cone image with Memento Tuxedo Black on Kraft paper and colored the image with Copic markers.  I highlighted the seed scales (like that?  I looked it up!)with a white pen and glitter.

I sponged Jumbo Java from a Versa Magic Dew Drop around the edges of the image panel and then distressed it a bit.   The mat is a Spellbinders die from Romantic Rectangles.   The gorgeous patterned paper is from the Authentique Festive pad.   The ribbon is tied with kraft jute and a red button for a little pop. 
Copic Collections used are:
Greens-Gr-3Walnut Collection

Those little touches on the seed scales really add so much girl. This is so great!

"Seed scales", huh? I learn something new every day! Usually on a papercraft blog it is a papercrafting thing, but today it is a little bit of botanical vocabulary -- thanks!

Stacy aka Twinshappy on SCS said...

Very pretty! Great idea with stamping on the kraft, never think to do that. The white seedlings as you said look great!

Heather said...

This is so pretty! I like that you made the "seed scales" (I am super impressed) look like they are snow-covered. Such a great image.

I do like the highlighted seed scales. It looks very sharp and so realistic!
