The card I am sharing today was inspired by Dena Rekow of The Creativity Cave. She does the most amazing projects and I adored this one. I stripped it back to basics for my version.

I stamped the small leaf for the Vintage Leaves stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, Delightful Dijon, Rich Razzleberry and Garden Green ink onto Stampin’ Up! Watercolour cardstock. I loved this colour combination. As soon as I stamped each colour I went over the image with an Aquapainter filled with a little water. This blurred and intensified the colour of each leaf, gorgeous….

I die cut each of the leaves with the co-ordinating Leaflet Framelit dies. The sentiment, from the Rose Wonder stamp set was stamped in Delightful Dijon ink onto a card base of Thick Whisper White cardstock. I spaced the leaves evenly across the card front, adhering the Cherry Cobbler, Rich Razzleberry and Garden Green ones with Tombow Liquid Adhesive. The Delightful Dijon leaf was added with Dimensionals to give a bit of lift.
