Harvest Berries

This week's Stamp Simply Challenge (ssnotime103) is "Overstamped Sentiment." We were to design a card, overstamping the sentiment over the image in some manner. After feeling a touch of Autumn in the air, I chose to use one of my all-time favorite Stampin' Up sets, "Botanicals."

I stamped my berries image and botanical verse onto PaperTrey Ink's Vintage Cream cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. After coloring the berry branch with Copic markers, I used an Itty Bitty background stamp to apply a stippled touch. A Spellbinders Rectangle die was used to cut the image panel.

My background papers are SU Chocolate Chip cardstock, and ProvoCraft Textured Red Hot Pepper dp.

A bit of warm, flannel SU trim finishes this design...hope you like it!
