PTI WCMD Challenge--Japan



The challenge was to make a card using Japanese art as an inspiration. I immediately thought of Out on a Limb, probably my favorite PTI set. I found my inspiration HERE. I used glossy CS and sponged my scene with Old Olive, Blue Bayou, Basic Gray and Soft Sky inks, using a torn paper mask. I hand drew some trees and smudged some Whisper White Craft ink in front of the mountain. Then I stamped the branch in Palette Burnt Umber, the flowers in Craft white (embossed with white), leaves in Old Olive, and berries in Tangerine Tango. Stamped the sentiment in the corner in Palette Burnt Umber. Card Base is Blue Bayou, finished off with some gold cord. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Hope everyone had a great WCMD on Sat!

So very pretty, I love it. If I don't win Floral Fusion I am going to have to bite the bullet and get this set;)

Amy, this is beautiful card. Gorgeous. You have done the landscape so well. Is this the orignal Out on a Limb set or the revised one?
