Avery Elle Banner and Wreath Anniversary Card

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. The weekend is almost here :)
I was creating some ink swatches for my distress inks and was playing with blending and testing color . I fell in love with this color combo of scattered straw, ripe persimmon, and dried marigold. Such a pretty combo.

The card is a standard A2 sized top folding card. I started off with a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock that was cut to 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and blended from the bottom up with Tim Holtz Distress ink...scattered straw, ripe persimmon, and finished at the top with dried marigold. Before cutting my distress background down a 1/4" I sprinkled some water and picked up the color that moves with the magic if Distress Inks and a paper towel. To finish of the background I then added a crazy stitched line with my sewing machine and a similar thread color to the ripe persimmon distress ink.


For the focal point of the card I used Avery Elle's Banner and Wreath Stamp and Die set. Since I was using my Copic Markers to color, I decided to stamp the images in Memento Rich Cocoa instead of the  usual black ink. For the final touch on the card and my mad moment of confetti fun I added a ton of Martha Steward Sequins with Multi Medium Matte adhesive.
