"Holiday Tag"

 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Nature's Brushstrokes"

For today's featured set, I decided to make a home decor item and framed my project using a shadow box frame I found at the dollar store.

After sponging my hills using some artichoke ink and torn copy paper, I stamped my base images in memento black onto corn husk card stock before adding the trees ink'd with markers.  Once I had my base images done, I stamped two additional layers of images onto scrap white card stock then colored all of the images with koh-i-noor pencils and a blender marker.  After my coloring was finished, I pulled out my Scenic Selections set then stamped the bird and grass before cutting out the additional images and popping them up.  For the final touches, I die cut some vines from scrap card stock and punched flowers using a Martha Stewart punch, adhered using micro glue dots, then pinched the sides up before adding gold ice stickles to the center of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs for a chance to win today's featured set.
