Less is more foliage

Well now, there's a subject that I like, especially in the autumn. Making a decision on how to treat the subject was a tough one but at least it was simplified by having to be a one layer card :-)

I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Foliage die to create a stencil and then, using individual pegs from Rubber Stamp Tapestry I stamped foliage in distress inks - the rectangular card using Wild Honey, Tea Dye, Barn door & a little Mustard Seed, the sentiment is from Kanban. The square card was stamped using Squeezed Lemonade, Ripe Persimmon & Seedless Preserves.

Two birthdays coming up soon so I'm all set!

    Thanks so much

    1. Thanks Chrissie for the " how to" it was indeed the second card that I thought I had linked to the challenge! I am still a real beginner when it comes to computers :-)!
      I earned a blinkie last week & I know what they are but no idea how to get it on to my blog as the one method I read about didn't work :-(.

      I guess I'll get there in the end....

  5. Gorgeous autumn leaves , the cards look great.
