Vintage leaves

I was so pleased when one of my team members sent me a pin of a card using vintage leaves.  How could I have forgotten about this lovely set?! So I decided to use it for this weeks challenges. The sketch from CAS was


and this is my version #CAS190


I drew round a plant pot to get the curve !  For the large leaf, I inked the stamp all over with the tangerine tango and then gently tapped old olive and soft suede pads around to give a multi coloured effect.

The global design project challenge was as follows


and here is mine #GDP052


For this one I rested the stamp on it’s back, inked it up as before, then spritzed it with water.  Then I find the best thing to do is to leave the stamp lying on it’s back and carefully lay some card on top and press it down with a spare acrylic block. I dried it with a heat tool and then overstamped using the tangerine tango.  I love this effect.
