PPA31: An Inspiration

Aren't these colors awesome together? I was inspired by this photo from Pals Paper Arts (PPA31):

This card was a cinch to create:
  • For the background, I used a piece of Whisper White and attached several Little Leaves die cuts (using my Big Shot and the Sizzlit). I used Dotto Removable adhesive to attach them so that I could run the sheet through my Big Shot (again) for a custom texture (for full details on how to do this, please visit this post).
  • I flipped the sheet over and colored the raised leaves using a blender pen and some Old Olive ink.
  • The berries, from Berry Christmas, were added using Rose Red ink.
  • I used dimensionals to attach the bird and sentiment for some added interest.
