Japanese Maple

More leaves? Definitely; I imagine leaves will feature for the next month at least! There will be a few Christmas cards thrown in here and there also.

This card was very simple to complete as the variation in the colour of the leaves is part of the stamp. I inked it with both Memento Morocco and Rhubarb stalk over versamark. By inking the stamp in versamark first then colour I was able to emboss the image in clear e.p. I then added minimal sponging for a background sky and matted in the two colours featured.

    Heather, your card is absolutely gorgeous!! I’m trying to figure out how you did your embossings. I understand you stamp in versamark first and the color – when do you emboss with the clear embossing powder?

    What a graceful branch, and those leaves are done beautifully! Blue skies & autumn leaves – is there anything prettier?

    That’s a gorgeous stamp, and it looks spectacular after the Heather treatment! Love the wispy clouds in the sky too.
