Rubbernecker Blog Challenge #7

Tami came up with an awesome sketch for today's blog challenge. Stop on by the Rubbernecker Blog and play along!


My finished card is 5 1/2" square. All stamps are available from Rubbernecker Stamp Co.

The pinecone montage is embossed with Tim Holtz Distress powders. They were sprinkled

onto the stamped image in Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Peeled Paint. The Pine Bough Sprig

is stamped in Encore Gold on Cocoa CS and on the Peace Text layer using Distress Peeled Paint.

The Artichoke layer was stamped with the Music Background in Encore Gold. The matting is

Chocolate CS and the card base is brushed gold.
