Day 5 STAMPlorationsNovember Stamp release... Trendy Leaves

Welcome to Day 5, the last day of the November Stamp Release Blog Hop here at STAMPlorations! For complete info on our hop, including how you can win stamps, click here.

Today, we're putting the spotlight on Trendy Leaves. We'll be picking one commenter to win this set so leave a comment here and on the rest of the STAMPlorations girls' posts for a chance to win the set.


And here's my project...
I stamped the leaf with various colours of Archival inks. I then stamped the same leaf on a separate piece of paper and fussy cut out 3 extra leaves.
I placed a piece of vellum over my background to soften, added a scribbly die cut, added a heart cut also from velum of which I stamped a sentiment from the Typografia Stamp Set with Black Versafine Ink.
To finish I tied some natural coloured twine around the card and added a bow from the same twine.
