My last card for today because it is almost time for me to begin meal preparation although I would prefer to stay in my craft room. Its my first entry for Double D since early this year and I was determined to participate this week. While on Pinterest I came across a very pretty leaf card and this is my take on the one I viewed – mystampspaperandink.blogspot.com. I used various Distress Oxides, squeezed lemonade, rusty hinge, scattered straw, dried marigold and finally a few dabs of frayed burlap. Initially I just the 2 lightest inks to get my panel covered. Then I randomly stamped leaves using VersaMark ink and a GKD set called Stitched Leaves which I clear embossed. I added more leaves and a florish from the same set along with a tiny leaf from SSS set. Once happy with the result I went over it all again with the darker shades of inks. Added some ink spatters and water drops then dried it. I also had some paper ribbon strips on my desk so I added them to the sides before adding the main panel on top. Using VersaMark and Cosmic shimmer powder I heat embossed the word on vellum. Original intention was to wrap this around the main piece but I forgot so it was added at the end. During my unpacking I came across the popped up leaves, purchased a long time ago, and these are the last two. Decided to use them as shown and am happy with the result. I think this is leafy enough for this challenge don’t you?
