Fern frond fragments

This is the last of my fern frond cards for now.  The next stamping task I have is some simple garden wedding invitations.

I did not set out to create three squares for this card; it just happened.  I stamped the ferns across a piece of cardstock but there was nothing special about the arrangement.  After punching out three fragments and adding the green and blue sponging I was much happier.  Dividing the squares with the sentiment was also experimental but I like the way it turned out.  As the sponging was applied after the squares were punched each one has a slightly dark border.  Although I started out with a white card base, artichoke turned out to be the best choice as it created a border which highlighted the ferns and words.

I think this one might be my favourite out of the three fern cards I created recently.


Stamps: Wilderness Vol.2 (Darkroom Door), Teeny Tiny Wishes

    I love the soft colors you sponged in the background and really, really like how you stamped the sentiment between the squares. That fern stamp is so pretty — going to have to get me one of them!

    Oooooh, this is beautiful! It looks like I’m standing in a forest, looking up through a tall tree into the sky! Lovely thought. I love the 3 scenes, and the way you’ve placed the sentiment. I love your description of how the card came to be! It’s good to know that even great stampers don’t always have a grand plan in mind to begin with. Lovely card.

    Hi Heather. I think it’s my favourite of the three too. I do love a group of three squares and the border works perfectly. The sentiment between two of the group is new to me too and it’s very effective. It’s always such a pleasure to looks at your work! Vx
