I have been wanting to play with a new stamp set I got recently from Altenew called Wild Ferns Stamp Set and this was a perfect time to try it out. Each of the three ferns in the set has three layers so I started by laying out the arrangement of the ferns on my card front and then choosing the inks I wanted to use. I used the three darkest shades from the Green Valley Mini Cube Set; Grass Field, Shadow Creek, and Mountain Pine working from lightest to darkest. These ferns are so realistic and I think they could work for several types of cards. Today I chose to make a thank you card for some of the gifts received this Christmas.
I used Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White, Weathervane, and Dark Indigo cardstock. The "Thanks" die is from Simon Says Stamp.
This is super clean and simple cardmaking with a lot of white space and a bold design. I'll be checking out your projects all this month to see the cards you've created using the color challenges.
