Autumn Wreath...Papertrey Make it Monday 300

Good morning! I have spent quite a bit of time over the last week playing with different color combinations for the Berry Wreath stamp set released by Papertrey Ink. I love fall and pumpkins and was wondering what it might look like using it as part of a card for Autumn.

I've been addicted to using my Finetec gold palette lately too and thought I'd try a no-lines painting job on the wreath stamp. I need a more steady hand and thinner brush but you can hopefully see where I was going with this. Autumn is a blaze of color where we live and I tried to capture that in the wreath and embellishments.

Melissa Phillips made some lovely cards using wreaths in her tutorial for Make it Monday, challenging us to add the extras to really make it pop. Loved her inspiration and always enjoy my PTI products. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Berry Wreath, Autumn Scarecrow; Ink: PTI Honey nut, summer sunrise, simply chartreuse, Ranger distress inks in mustard and pumpkin; Paper: Kraft, off white, black, patterned paper strip; Other: Finetec gold palette of inks, sequins, Spellbinders fall strip, PTI kraft button, twine, summer sunrise ribbon, gold embossing powder

Stunning. The black makes your wreath and your pumpkin look so bright and vibrant. Great idea. Cheers.

There's so much detail and iridescence in your card...it is beautiful!! I really like those pearlescent colors with the black background and tiny swirling leaves! What a treat for the eyes!

Love the sparkly chalkboard look, Peggysue! The watercolored pumpkin is the perfect centerpiece!
