Lovely Leaves

Hi guys

Tonight I'd like to share a card I've made for the latest challenge at Less is More and this week it's one layer card week and the theme is foliage.

I'm really pleased with how this one turned out...

Unusually for me I chose a coloured card base for this card.  I recently picked up some Stampin' Up cardstock from a craft sale, all of which were retired colours so I've no idea what shade this is but I love the pale olive tone.  I also chose to use the one and only Papertrey Ink product I have in my stash, the Lovely Leaves stamp set.  I bought this a while ago on eBay, the only time I've ever managed to place the winning bid for anything of this brand, it was very stressful!

I love this set as it has separate stamps for the outline and the centre of the leaves.  I stamped the stem and the outline of the leaves in green ink and then used white pigment ink to stamp the leaf centres.  I then used my Uni-ball Signo pen which contains white pigment ink to gently mark the centre of the berries.  A sentiment in the same green ink completed my card.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Lovely Leaves; Stampin' Up - Simply Sketched
  • Ink: Versa Color - Bamboo and White
  • Cardstock: Stampin' Up
  • Accented with Uni-ball Signo pen - white

Now that I've used this stamp set I've got lots of ideas going around in my head so it will certainly be inked up again in the future :)

I'm so grateful for your visit, I'd love to know what you think.

Take care
