March Quote of the Month

This month's quote was -In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous" Aristotle

I decided to use some of my stamps that I have not dusted off for a while.

I started with 130LB card stock and stamped the wolves on it. I then did the "stamp smoosh" technique with Fluid Colorbox inks. I masked the wolves (Coronado Island) and added the scene (A Stamp in the Hand) and the Pine Trees (Stampscapes).

I cut around the stamped piece and made a frame. I attached the stamped image to a piece of charcoal card stock then added the frame with double-sided foam tape.
I stamped the wolves again, cut them out and attached them on the previously stamped area with double-sided foam tape.
I had some chipboard bookplates so decided to use one to frame the quote. I adhered some Sookwang tape to it and then added some Glitter Ritz. I attached it with some brads to hide the holes.
I thought it still needed "something", so I punched out some maple leaves from a piece of mono- printed card stock that I had made, then stamped them with a Magenta stamp that had some texture. I adhered the punchies with some metallic thread to give the look of a vine.

This will be mailed off to Debbie along with the It-Girl gift for April.
