Less is more week 41 - Leaves

Brilliant! Chrissie and Mandi have done it again!  They've come up with a challenge this week which enables me to use another stamp (or should I say cube) which has been sadly neglected.

The challenge for this week is LEAVES and it just so happened that I had my Judikins Fall Leaves cube out on my desk which I intended to use on last week's card but didn't use in the end.

Looking at the card now, I wish I'd changed the direction of one of the centre leaves and stamped it a bit more 'off the page', but hey ho, never mind.

I coloured the leaves with Promarkers and sponged Distress Inks between masked lines.  I added some embossed lines and a HOTP sentiment.

Unfortunately, the quality of the cardstock is really poor.  It's from a stash of cream cards and envelopes I bought from Create and Craft a while ago for £4.95 for about 100 (I think).  You get what you pay for - it'll do for layering or even maybe a distressed card. It already has the distressed look without any effort.
