This leaf has been sitting on my desk for weeks, so I proceeded to play with my paints and alter the look. Autumn is the season in New Zealand now so it is an appropriate image.
The leaf is a mix of Distress paints/Inks and stains applied liberally until I was happy, then I added crackle..... this product is my nemesis, and I cannot fathom why it works beautifully one minute and tragic the next, this occasion was tragic!
To rectify I stamped a crackle effect with Archival ink .
The striped Bg is made with the gelli plate using Acrylic paints, dry embossed then ripped.
Had fun playing with this one, I did not embellish as is my norm as the card is for a friend who would prefer simplicity.
Alas to me it looks naked.
I made this card for the Southern Girls Challenge -Earn Your Stripes.
Hope you all have a great Easter weekend.
