So, obviously there are lots of layers on this one. I had picked up the Cuttlebug leaf dies on clearance at Michael's a while back hoping they weren't going to just collect dust in my craft stash. I don't have to feel guilty now cause they were absolutely perfect for this card. I used a paper piercer to add some veins but they were just too plain in kraft so I inked them a bit but they still weren't quite where I wanted them. Then I remembered another clearance buy I'd gotten at Hobby Lobby. It's a Crumple Paper Edge stamp from Stampendous that looks exactly like the speckling you find on falling autumn leaves. Here's a close up.
For Jesen's leaf wings I decided to do some stipling and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.
Goodness know EVERYBODY out there has to have at least ONE punch or die in their stash so grab yours and a Mo image and come join in our fun this week for a chance at a $5.00 gift voucher from Mo's Digital Pencil store. Mo's been steadily adding new goodies in there lately.
