It's no secret...I like pretty paper and I like fun stamps. To me they are like wine and cheese. Peanut butter and jelly. Vodka and tonic. You get the picture. :)
When I was at CKC I picked up a few pieces of the new Basic Grey Picadilly paper and recently found myself using if for an unexpected project. I paired it up with stamps from the In the Meadow collection from Papertrey Ink to make a birthday card for someone special who loves hunting and the outdoors.
I was really excited with the unexpected combination and couldn't resist adding a little sparkle. For a frosty look on the tree, I lightly coated the stamped image with Glossy Accents and sprinkled on an iridescent glitter.
For a distressed look on the deer images, I stamped with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain ink. I even dug up my old photo corner punch for a fun accent to tie it all together.
