I have been wanting to try stamping with real leaves for a long time after I saw this video by Gina K...
So before the big winds that are forecast for today come through I went out and grabbed some leaves...
Note to self...go out earlier before they are all eaten by bugs!
The base card is white card stock with a layer of black card stock.
Following the video, but using white card stock for the main piece and Distress Oxide worn lipstick ink, I stamped the leaf.
I also found my fingers weren't hard enough for a good print so I grabbed a nearby plastic spoon and used that for rubbing.
Using my Misti and a verse from MFT "Have Hope", I curled the verse to fit into the curve of the leaf and stamped it using StazOn jet black ink.
To finish I taped it to the card front.
This is one of a set of four I made to give a friend who belongs to a breast cancer group.
I made my appointment for my mammogram...did you?
