Hi! Today I used the Vintage Leaves stamp set to create some fall leaves using the colors from the color challenge for HHS#222 and the sketch challenge for Freshly Made Sketches #208. On the front panel of Shimmery Paper I used sponges to create the color mixture and a border. I added an extra panel of Cajun Craze to create a “ribbon like” border. For the leaves I sponged a piece of Shimmery Paper with the colors. I stamped the images with Memento Ink and cut them out with the framelits.
I purchased the FINE-TIP GLUE when it was first available. I used it a few times and it works great. I really didn’t get that WOW feeling though until I used it on the leaves. I just followed some of the veins in the leaf and then added some Gold Glitter. It gives it a clean and subtle yet sparkly look. What do you think?
