Grateful Leaves


Hello all Monica here today to share a card I made for our layer challenge. I started by stamping my leaf with distress inks and and spritzing before I stamped on my watercolor paper. I repeated the steps with all three inks. Then using the same inks I used the same process with some ink blot stamp images.


I then stamped the veins in versa mark so that I could emboss them in gold. I used the same method of embossing for my sentiment on the vellum piece. I layered the vellum on the panel, wrapped it with twine and added a bow.


I adhered the panel to my card and added some sequins for a little more glitz! Just in case the gold embossing wasn’t enough. Below is another picture so you can see the embossing a little better.
