Crazy4Challenges DT, we were asked to use leaves in some way on our cards/projects.
I used a set by Penny Black. I did add some lines to the original stamped images, trying a simplified version of Lydia's tutorial on stamp etching. It does add a bit more depth to the image. May have to try a more expanded version next time.
I fussy cut out the sunflower and leaves, used a MFT die for the sentiment panel, embossed the background, paper pierced the base, and add three brads.
Be sure to go 'leaf peeking' at the Crazies Blog. There are sure to be plently of leaves to gaze upon.
