Now to the next set in our sneak peek line up! This set is an earthy, breath of fresh air that's perfect for note cards, guy cards or those creations when you just want a more organic look!

Ferns Graphic


This set, Ferns & Fiddles, was hand drawn with pen and ink by Marcella Hawley and then set into polymer. It features a handful of different ferns and a fiddle. While getting ready for this set, I wasn't aware that a fiddle (a.k.a. fiddlehead) is the unfurled fronds of a young fern that's edible. You learn something new everyday! I do know, this set has it all -- beautiful fronds and fiddles that are sure to give your card a real natural and earthy feel!

Moving on to my creation!
I just love the earthy feel of this set, so when I picked up these decorative papers from Webster's Pages, I knew that I wanted to create a rustic and aged look with my stamped image.

I used the Decked Edge Rectangle (did you see this die is on sale -- big time?) to create my shape, and while the die was still on my cut paper, I used Antique Linen Distress Ink and sponged on my background color. I then used the same ink with the background strip from the Thank You set to create my collage style background. After that, I stamped a few of the leaves from the set and colored them up with the Evergreen Copic Collection. I then used some Pesto Adirondack ink to stamp the sentiment in the corner and... voila!

Here's a close up....
To create my card, I matted it all up, added some stitching and THIS lovely cotton linen ivory ribbon. Pretty easy peasy.

I'm sure you won't want to miss what the design team created with this beautiful set! So, hop on over and see....
