Stem Blessings

Stem Silhouettes would have to be my next favourite set from the Summer mini, a great set for those all too tricky male cards. This card uses a Certainly Celery base that has been randomly stamped along the bottom with the same stem as the main image. The stamp was inked with Old Olive which was stamped off on scrap paper a couple of times then stamped a couple of times on the cardstock before reinking to get varying shades of the green. The main image was first inked with Certainly Celery and then lightly inked with Old Olive to get a speckled effect. I've also used layers of Night of Navy and Barely Banana, some Antique Brass hodgepodge, cream grosgrain ribbon and a wee bit of paper piercing to frame the sentiment.
