William Morris Style

I wanted to try the super hard challenge over at Frilly and Funkie.  They wanted us use William Morris Style.  This means muted colors, flowers or leaves & an animal.  The examples for us looked like this:

Once I got rolling on this theme, I couldn't resist making a few projects!


This card uses some cool blueprint leaves from Tim Holtz.  I bought them from the Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Using distress ink pads, I blended some fun colors together & stamped over it.  Then I cut the leaves out.
I found the orange tapestry paper in my scraps & grabbed this die cut deer from a pile of premade animals.  I had borrowed my sister's Cricut cartridge & cut out deer, moose & fox.  They're so cool with the layered swirls!
This card also involved Tim Holtz leaf stamps.  I gave them a little color with my Copic markers.  The pretty bird stamp is an old Prima set.  I masked the bird & stamped those pretty blossoms by him.  Here again, I used some scrap paper & left over sticker.  Walnut distress ink made my circle edges tinted.
Lastly, is a sympathy card.  The muted tones seemed appropriate.  I used a Unity stamp for the woods.  The bird embellishment is from Webster's Pages.  The embossed paper scrap were a nice texture to add.
