Rustic Branches Revisited...

Hello there.  July 1..  crazy, isn't it?  Our nation's birthday is almost here and the summer is nearly half over.  But it's the first and that means it's time for the Papertrey Ink Senior Team challenge.  This month we are revisiting Rustic Branches.  Rustic Branches is one of those great basics that I'm so glad to finally have in my collection.  I've admired it since it was first released and I'm excited to play with it more!

I created a monochromatic card using a very simple double stamping technqique.  It's super-duper easy, requires only one color of ink, and the results are very fun.  It's one of those techniques that I kind of forget about, but should really play around with more.  Here I used just Pure Poppy ink to create the wreaths.  


The sentiment was created by stamping the words "Peace Love Joy", also from Rustic Branches onto a Double Ended Banner diecut.  I topped off the stamped wreaths with hearts cut using the smallest Heart Prints die as well as some Sweet Blush and vintage buttons.  


Let me just show you a couple step-by-step shots for this easy technique...

Stamp the wreath image one time (I used Pure Poppy ink)....


Then working fairly quickly, without re-inking the stamp, rotate it a bit to nestle the leaves in between the first stamped image and stamp again.  


Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.  That's all there is to it.  Kinda fun, huh?  

Now be sure to hop around to the other Sr Team members to see what they've created using Rustic Branches!
