PTI September Blog Hop - Wreath #4


I have to stop making wreaths and get my chores done! But I wanted to show a little love to Rustic Branches, one of my very first Papertrey sets. I stamped these tags last night and used glitter-gel pen to color the leaves and make the red berries. I used PTI white adhesive sheet and unfortunately, gel ink does not get absorbed into this medium as well as it does card stock. These still were not dry this morning! I finally used tissue to blot the images so I could complete the project without smearing ink!
