Leaves... hello!

Hi there!

Happy Thursday to you!

Almost weekend in the UAE... and one more day to go for most of the rest of the world :)

I am playing along in some of my favorite challenges with today's card.

A closer look:

... and the supplies I used:

I used:

  • Altenew inks : Paper Bag, Espresso, Olive &  Rocky Shores.
  • A layered leaf stamp from a tamp set by Hampton arts.
  • Polka dot BG stamp by Stamperia.
  • Silhouette cameo .
  • Sentiment stamp from Altenew.
  • Misti.

To create the leaf focal point, I stamped the leaf, scanned it, and imported it to my Silhouette studio.
I enlarged it, and cut the outline using black card stock, and the full leaf from white card stock.
I inked up the polka dot background stamp randomly with the same colors I used for the card base to create the pattern on the large leaf.

I love that giant polka dot leaf as your focal point with all it's plainer versions in the background, Hannelie.

Great use of this lovely autumnal colour palette, Hannelie ... the offset stamping adds a touch of fun playfulness to that tumble of leaves ... and oh my, a polka dot leaf ... beautifully showcased! Hugs, Anita :)
