Copper Wreath angled L with ink

Hi there stampers!  I hope you’re having a nice long weekend!  I’m organizing my stamp room and….stamping!  I’ve been playing with some copper:  copper thread, copper embossing powder, copper dots on special paper!

It’s hard to capture in photographs the pretty sparkliness of the copper embossing.  It’s different, not gold, not silver, but richer.  I’ve also used a bit of copper thread.

Do you see the darling little pinecones hanging from the bow?  They actually look like copper and go perfectly with the wreath.  The background paper is a gorgeous sheet of little copper dots on a heavy vanilla designer series paper.  It’s one of the selections in the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The leaves were stamped on watercolor paper which was watercolored with both Rich Razzleberry and Delightful Dijon ink and my Aqua Painter.  Then they were cut out with the Paisley Framelits,
