Just Leaves

Good morning!
I hope you are well.  It is still cold here, I have seen some of my posts on fb from a year ago and I was saying how hot and sunny it was.....
I am still catching up with cards from Rosie's show a while back when she was showcasing Tina's lovely flowers and leaves.
One of my favourite things to do is just use one stamp to make the whole design.  I have done that on this card using one of the leaves from the Tina's Butterflies and Dragonflies set

I used the solid square from Sam's Shapes to stamp three squares in different colours (I used my new Distress Oxides for this).  It took a bit of experimenting to get the right level of colour for this, I didn't want it too dark as I wanted to stamp over it.
I stamped the leaf over the top in black, then coloured in some of the little sections, using the same three colours

Fot the background, I blended the same colour inks, then spritzed and blotted, then stamped the leaf, again in the same colours.  I edged both pieces of work with black, then mounted up.

Hope you have a lovely day
