Where joy does sit on every bough

This weeks inspiration at the Summer of Color is my all time favorite ice cream flavor... oh yes, the joyful mint chocolate chip. Yummy! I love it so much that it is also the colors that I use decorating my house with  sage greens, tans and brown. LOL. I decided on a nature theme this week so my creation is full of green ferns and bronze butterflies. Over at Fashionable Stamping the theme for challenge #24 is  "Nature" so this will be my submission.

Lots of layers with this piece. I started by stamping a transparency with green and brown Stazon ink with ferns.This is layered upon a stamped image of ferns and butterflies that have been water colored. They are surrounded by green glitter tape. On top of the transparency are bouquets of paper ferns and real pressed ferns too along with some tulle, sequins and brown glitter brads.(the chocolate chips!). More  cut glitter ribbon on the corners with brown glitter brads.The sentiment is from a poem of  William Blake...."Welcome stranger to this place. Where joy doth sit on every bough."

Hope you are sitting amongst a joyful bough this week.
take care, gerri
