Woodland Walk


I've never been a fan of Garden Green or Wild Wasabi -- until now!  I think that I'm still in the first (and only!) pack of Garden Green that I bought about ten years ago.  I just got the Woodland Walk dsp to use for a Creative Crew challenge and have totally fallen in love with the Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi and Garden Green color combination.

There is a fair amount of detail in this card, if you look closely.  The truck image is stamped on some faux-notebook paper and tied with linen thread.  The raggedy borders are done by punching Chocolate Chip with the Scallop border punch.  The border was further distressed by punching each scallop with a 1/16" handheld circle punch, pierced along the edges, sponged with Early Espresso and rolled/torn between the fingers.  There are also antique copper brads in all four corners, "anchoring" the rough border.

Totally awesome, as usual Lisa!! I like a lot of your new ideas for making this vintage -- I will be trying some of them out in my future vintage projects. Thanks so much for sharing.
