There is an Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week. Here is your Inspiration....
When I was looking at this photo, I saw a beautiful display for the dishes for a nice Thanksgiving meal. What could go better (with my rarely used Fine China) than a nice, handmade place card?! I did the "rock and roll" technique on the leaves to give it more dimension with colors. I inked it with More Mustard first, then rolled it in Pumpkin pie then last in a little dab of Cherry Cobbler. Here is the result:
For the rosettes, I punched out a 1 3/4" Circle then cut it into a spiral starting from the outside to the center. I coiled it in to the center and dropped a glob of glue and held it in shape to form the little flower. Here is a close up of the little rosettes that are topped with the Champagne Fine Glitter:
Oh yeah, my mom's name is Marlene and she hosts a lovely Thanksgiving dinner, so I thought her name on my project is fitting. A beautiful place card for a beautiful hostess.
