Botanical Branches + June Insta Hop

Hi friends! It's Julee popping in to share a little June inspiration with you. Today is our monthly hop over on Instagram, so be sure to hop on over there for even more inspiration from the team and a chance to win a $25 gift code to the shop! Winner will be drawn from comments across the hop and announced on the SNSS Instagram page on June 16.

On the hop today, I'm sharing a couple of cards with the gorgeous new Botanical Branches set. For the first one, I pulled out a watercolor palette to color up the main image as an olive branch. I trimmed by hand with a slight white border, then added a bit of twine to the stem.

I created a mini slim background using the Fern Fronds Stencil in a few different distress inks, then then over stamping randomly with the Psalm 23 Background stamp. I went with black accents for the mats, and a white embossed sentiment for contrast. The finished size is 3.5 x 6"

For the second card I stamped the same image a few times on kraft cardstock then colored with prismacolor pencils. I rarely use colored pencils, but I love the way they pop on kraft cardstock! This was a super fun and pretty simple image to color with just a few pinks, greens, and a white pencil. I added some texture to the background with distress ink and the Script Stencil The sentiment from Truth Quotes 1 is embossed onto vellum to finish things off, since I couldn't bear to cover up the coloring!
