French Foliage

Hi All,

I met up with my long lost 'Buddies' today, (it's been so long - the summer hols got in the way:), we made a variety of cards using this gorgeous stamp set.

One of the designs I have shown you already and another one's been tweaked slightly.

Here's a simple 9.5cm square card, stamped in River Rock and Always Artichoke. The leaf image has been stamped off first and then rolled in the ink pad again to create a darker border around the outside edge.

I just love the autumn season.........isn't nature wonderful; it amazes me how many different colours a leaf can change this is the effect I was hoping to achieve in the making of the next card. (Joesph's Technicolour Dream Coat......I think they call it)

I started off with Whisper White card stock and daubed More Mustard, Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze all over no white could be seen. Then randomly stamped the leaf images in Versa Mark ink, covered this with clear embossing powder and set with the heat tool. (You can just about make the leaf shapes out in the photo)

I then covered the whole card stock in Chocolate Chip ink using my brayer. Don't worry......... when finished just gently rub over with kitchen towel to expose the coloured leaves.

Here's the finished card...........

............hope you've enjoyed, thanks for dropping on by
