Creative Belli Challenge #123- Non-paper

 For the Creative Belli Challenge, we are to use - Non paper
                (material, burlap, silk, jeans, netting, etc) 

  I used an old SU set Botanicals and stamped the image in pigment ink and clear embossed it on wood paper .   I found a piece of bark from our birch tree in my front yard, and decided to add that under the leaves and over another piece of the wood paper.  Next is a layer of Olive cardstock. The bottom level is Confetti cardstock stamped with Ranger Inks plus a touch of Olive and Artichoke inks. I added a bow out of braided twine.

  The wood paper is real wood, and I stamped and embossed on it, I have sewn on it and it goes through my printer for printing digital images too.

The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!  Botanicals is one of those stamp sets that I will never give up- love it!
