Between The Folds Bi-Weekly Challenge Blog our theme is the Swan Lake paper kit or its color palette of Black, Canary, Fern, Glacier, Goldrush, Peacock, Poppy, Slate, Whisper, and White Daisy. Wow, that's a lot of colors! So many that I had a really hard time deciding which ones to focus on so instead of choosing, I tried to use them all!
Autumn Wishes set in Goldrush and Fern inks, set it on a panel of white CS and the Peacock patterned paper, and then I brushed the pumpkin with the shimmer brush. For the panel on the right, I broke out a retired set called Poster Tidings, which I masked several times so I could use multiple inks. (Here's a hint: stamp the top and bottom lines together and then mask/stamp one color at a time, using the "autumn" and "blessed" to get everything lined up.) I topped that with strips of the retired bronze shimmer trim.
For the inside, I cut a piece of Whisper CS to the size I needed and topped that with this pocket panel featuring this pair of swans. I used the retired scrapbooking and card making workshop stamps from last year's Pathfinding kit and added these 3-d heart and arrow pieces from the Swan Lake complements.
Happy crafting! ~~ Annette
