Less Is More - One Layer Card - Leaves

For various reasons, I've just not had time to play at some of my favourite challenges lately but today, as we have church this evening, I made time to join in with this week's


I know some people dread one layer cards, but I'm getting quite fond of them and I'm certainly not as intimidated by them as I used to be.


For this one, I cut a mask from Eclipse Masking using a long thin Nestabilities oval die.  Having positioned it on the card, I sponge inked the oval in Distress Inks using Shabby Shutters and Antique Linen.  Then I overstamped with a leaf from my Kodomo Autumn set in Memento Bamboo, Potters Clay and Rhubarb Stalk.  I then did the little leaves around the edges with a Tapestry stamp, again in Potters Clay.  Finally, I peeled off the mask and stamped the final leaf in Memento Rich Cocoa, and added the Hero Arts sentiment in Potters Clay.

Hugs, Sxx
