Wonderful Leaves & Kindness



Hope everyone is having a super Sunday with some time to craft too !


This one layer card uses only 4 stamps and a plain white 4.5 x 4.5 inch card blank.  I have stamped the leaves using Distress Inks in peeled paint, pine needles, forest moss & rusty hinge.



  


I have then used a waterbrush and massaged the colours a bit to give a watercolour look. Drying with a heat gun to set.

 
 

The sentiment is stamped in Versafine onyx black.  This card fits the bill for the Less Is More Challenge blog for week 184 whose subject is 'Foliage'.
