Sponged Leaf

Can you tell I'm switching seasons here? Moving toward more autumnal & winter themes?

This weeks SCS CAS challenge (CAS136) is Ways to Use It: Leaves. I went with a very CAS design, making my leaf the focal point. I started by stamping this leaf image from "Autumn Splendor" in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. Then I sponged the center of the leaf in Pumpkin Pie ink & the edges with Cherry Cobbler. I love how life-like it turned out. Instead of simply adhering the leaf to my card base, I curled up some of the edges to give this card a bit more dimension. I also sponged the edges of my card with white craft ink for even more added interest!

Thanks for visiting :)
