Distressed Leaves

Hi crafters and followers.  Back at work today and as I was out of the office on Monday no doubt I will be busy.
My card today is one I made quite a while ago and to be honest I have never been quite sure whether I like it or not.
I started by playing around with inking some card with distress inks and then decided I may as well use it as a backing paper hence I then stamped some leaves in both black ink and embossed them and then in white ink and embossed them. 
I did some matting and layering and then in my crafty stash I came across this ribbled card so decided to see what that was like to stamp on with the leave stamp.  I am not quite sure where the sentiment came from and I can't remember exactly which box it is in now.  I then finished the card off with a marianne die flower and leave.
Even as I type I am still not sure what I think about this card so maybe you can pass a comment!  Anyway, thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my blog.  You take care.


  1. Love the techniques you have used and the layout, but if its an honest opinion I would have stuck with the same colour for the sentiment and flower as the layers.
