Leaf as a Stamp

 Hello!  The other day I saw a video with Gina K using actual leaves and Distress Oxide inks to make cards.  It reminded me of doing that several years ago as well as scanning leaves to create my own digital papers.  This week I picked up some leaves (boy was it cold outside!) and pulled out some distress oxide inks to play with.   To make the card shown above, I used a Coleus leaf (pictured below) with Twisted Citron and Aged Mahogany and white cardstock.  I added the word Thanks with a Repeat Impressions stamp and the Aged Mahogany ink.  Placed this on card base of GKD Faded Brick CS. A quick and easy card and certainly one of a kind.
Challenges:
 The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes Challenge 02418.
As You Like It Challenge: Clean and Simple or  Fussy and Fancy and Why?  I seem to have gravitated to Clean and Simple more lately...like to focus on the images and the coloring.
Modsquad Challenge: Make a Fall Thank You card.




Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
