The subject for this week's one layer card challenge at Less Is More is foliage, which as it happens, coincides with the deciduous trees of Maine beginning to change into their autumn garb. Pretty leaves are everywhere! In fact, the photo shows a leaf I recently noticed along a trail where I've been walking -- an eyecatcher to me because of the unique play of chartrueuse and deep caramel brown... Enter the idea: Why not try to mimic God's handiwork?
I used a combination of Distress and Adirondack inks -- Shabby Shutters, Wild Honey, and Mushroom... daubered directly onto the largest oak leaf from Flowers & Leaves. The Scripture verse, from Bookmarkables, was then stamped over the leaf image in Adirondack Expresso.
Note: Since I still had some kraft colored paper sitting at my workspace, I actually tried using that first, but compared to the real thing, it seemed a bit too muted, sooooooo next, a try on white stock... Better. Certainly neither are as good as God's, and inkwise, Rusty Hinge would probably have been a better choice than the Mushroom, but it was still fun to try.
Also, a special thank you to the ladies at Less Is More for showcasing the brown & pink card I entered last week. Discovering that I'd been CASed was an unexpected surprise that really brighted my day.
