Fancy Folk Art

Welcome to the final day of the Papertrey Ink January Countdown and the second design team group post day. This time around our focus is on Fancy Folk Art. Be sure to check out Nichole Heady's blog for more info on this set.  

Each of us have chosen an inspiration piece to be inspired by.  Here's mine...
Yep.  I'll take one of these please!  Found here.
The colors in the inspiration piece are soft and subtle yet stunning and gorgeous, all at the same time.  This was my inspiration for today's ensemble.
I began by stamping the Fancy Folk Art arrangement outline in Hero Arts wet cement ink, a light gray.
Then filled with melon berry, sweet blush and some more HA wet cement inks.  The rug features the slightest pop of navy, I incorporated this into my project via the sentiment.  Here's How: I stamped the sentiment onto the card front (over the flower arrangement) and also onto scrap cardstock; I hand cut the banner portion from the scrap cardsock and attached it to the card with dimensional adhesive.
For the tag, I decided to go for a softer look by omitting the navy.  Don't get me wrong... I love the navy used above. I just wanted to switch things up a bit for the second project.
I stamped both the outline and leaves in HA wet cement and filled the flowers with melon berry and sweet blush inks, all onto a die cut Tag Sale #5.  Finished the card off with a topping of white silk ribbon.  Here's How:  I cut two strands which I threaded through the top hole; then tied together with an additional length of the same ribbon, tied into a bow.


Well, there you have it. I hope you've enjoyed! Just remember that all the new items used today will be available for purchase beginning January 15, at Papertrey Ink.  

Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Gorgeous, as always. You are a brave soul to stamp your sentiment on top of all that work. I would have such a disaster....

  11. You really made this set work for you. Initially, I honestly wasn't so impressed but now that I've seen your examples with the folk art, I'm rethinking it.

  14. Just a quick question... what do you mean "you filled" the Fancy Art Work stamp in with ink color? Did you stamp the image and then color the areas with some of the ink (using a water brush or something similar)?

  15. Gorgeous, as usual!
    It's so delicate. I was wondering how you made the beautiful white silk ribbon with so many strands...Thank you so much for sharing your trick!
