Birthday Leaves

by karen @ carefree creations - Birthday Leaves

I created this card for the Paper Smooches Sparks Cool Shades color challenge -> Autumn.

Maybe it was the subliminal message in the color story title, but I definitely thought autumn once I got my color swatches out. So I picked out a leaf set to work with.

I used the current sketch challenge from CAS(e) This Sketch for my layout.

When stamping the solid leaves, I thought it would be good to give them a little texture/pattern. First I stamped the solid image then I stamped the pattern overlay. To do the overlay, I inked a gingham image and kissed it to the clean solid leaf. Since the stamps are polymer, it was easy to line them back up.

The card still needed a bit more texture, so I dropped some smooch spritz onto the card base (my spritzer doesn’t spray any more, but the ink inside is still good so I just uncap the bottle and shake the straw over the project).

Thanks for taking a peek!
