Harmony leaves

I am enjoying making Gratitude cards and had fun experimenting with patterns and colours for this one. I used the background stamp, Harmony, which I randomly inked in three colours and stamped on white cardstock. I then embossed the leaves in clear and sponged over the whole panel, in brown and orange.  Combining leaves with a tapestry style pattern is a bit unusual but I think it works here.

    What great colours, Heather! Beautiful design, too. And yes, buying stamps is definitely a good first (well, second, making cards is the first and fun part!) step. 😉

    It’s so elegant! I love the colors and the way the pattern still shows up around the leaves.

    Lovely rich card, Heather. The leaves look like they are in mid-air because of the darker shading around them.
