Jeanne J. *Day 4*

Today is our last day of inspiration with Jeanne.  Thanks so much, Jeanne, for allowing me to share your work and for inspiring us all.  This card of yours is one of my favs:
I just can't get enough of Jeanne's color scheme on this card. 
Here's my take:

I began by stamping Penny Black Paisley Outline with VersaMark Ink onto cream cardstock and embossing with clear embossing powder.  Next, I applied Distress Inks, Fired Brick, Crushed Olive, Dusty Concord, and Old Paper to this background.  The large die cut by Tim Holtz was inked with my new favorite combo of Distress Inks- Broken China and Evergreen Bough.  Penny Black 2943H Brush Butterfly was inked with Broken China, Wild Honey and Fired Brick Distress Stains.  Once stamped onto cream cardstock it was cut out and then the edges were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Sentiment stamped with VersaFine ink onto Spellbinders Ribbon Banner (first inked with Old Paper Distress Ink). 

Thanks again for visiting. :)
Wishing you a wonderful weekend, my friends!

Wow so love your take on Jeanne's card. I actually have that paper that she used, but so love her die cut pieces and the layering that she did. Your card is stunning. I so love how you stamped the background and added darker versions of the colors she used. So love your banner and the twine that you added. So love the array of colours.
