LIM #319

Just a short post to enter the current challenge at Less is More which is a One Layer Card with the subject Leaves.


I first saw this technique on Brenda Keenan's blog, where she had one leaf, with the tree outline from Sheltering Tree stamped inside the leaf stencil.  I loved it immediately and copied her idea to make thank you cards a-plenty.  For this card, I have used two leaf shapes, but the same tree branches inside it - I love the colours, so rich and autumn-like  - which it is in Australia right now!  I used only three distress inks - mowed lawn, abandoned coral and seedless preserves.  The sentiment is also Stampin' Up! - Endless Thanks.

  3. Fabulous. Such gorgeous colour. It is suppose to be Autumn still feels a lot like Summer! :) I don't mind the warm weather as long as it isn't too hot

  4. This is a wonderful idea to use those trees for the leaf veins! I must say that the colours you chose for the sponged area are absolutely glorious. They give such a rich and opulent look to your card. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
