A Golden Afternoon for the February 2019 Greek Isles Blog Hop Event

Welcome to our February 2019 Greek Isles Blog Hop!  Our theme for this month is Sale a Bration and the Occasions Catalog.  

After scouring Pinterest for all kinds of beautiful pictures of Greece for my Greek Isles Trip planning board I settled on a color scheme of Blue, White, and Green.  Then I chose to the Golden Afternoon stamp set. which I feel is a real hidden gem in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  In case you missed it - it's on page 31.  It's very simple but I love the script font used for the many beautiful sentiments.  I thought the large tree image vaguely resembled an olive tree so I decided to use that as my focal image.
 I colored directly on the tree stamp with my Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin' Write Markers, and stamped the flock of birds in Night of Navy ink.  I thought it looked a little stark so I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush to paint the leaves and the birds.  The Stella help blend the ink a bit so the trees have a more painted look., and softens the image of the whole card.
I stamped the sentiment on a label cut from one of my favorite new sets of framelits - the Needlepoint Elements and popped it up on dimensionals.  Then I die cut little olive leaves from the same Needlepoint Elements framelits and adhered them to the card with mini glue dots.  I added a little bow tied with Old Olive Linen Thread to add the finishing touch.

I hope you've enjoyed the little creative escape to Greece I envisioned creating with my card!  And thank you for joining our trip achievers blog hop.  I know you will be equally inspired by what the others have to share.  You are currently at my blog, www.jessbcreativecardiology.com.
