Crafty Leaf Tendrils

Today I have another card using a Crafty Individuals stamp.  I wanted the main focus to be on the center image so I kept the background simple.

The scenery stamp was inked with StazOn Black and stamped onto Shimmery White paper.  I then sponged ColorBox Frost White, Sage Shadow, VersaMagic Pretty Petunia & Purely Pomegranate.

I thought the Leaf Tendrils stamp by Memory Box would compliment the main image and look nice as a border so I stamped it several times in Sage Shadow.  After assembling the card I realized perhaps I should have added some accents with my color spritzer tool, but it was too late.  I guess I will have to make another card ... lol.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Donna
Another fantastic card with great blending and stamping techniques. Maybe in a few years, my cards may reach the quality of yours? I am so glad I found your blog, you inspire me with ideas.

Donna what a beautiful card....love how you sponged your image. Funny how critical we are of our own work always thinking we should have added just one more thing...I do that all the time. Looks great.

Intriguing card. I like the way you incorporated the leaves on the left side. It's just right adding interest without distracting from your focal scene.
