Before you read on, can I just remind you all about a brand new challenge that launched yesterday? The name is Always Use Rubber, and there will be a new theme every two weeks. It's a stamping challenge, so you need to use some stamping on your work (and you can use clear stamps, not just rubber!) and no digis. We have a beautiful photo inspiration board for our first challenge - do please pop over and have a look!
I love autumn, the beautiful colours and the crisp leaves, so it's not really surprising that I have a lot of leaf stamps in my collection. The two larger leaf stamps I used here were bought from the US company Just For Fun some years ago. One side of the wood has a silhouette stamp and the other side has the veins to stamp separately. Positioning the veins needs the use of a stamp positioner - nowadays a set like this would probably be clear stamps that you could align by eye or using a Misti.
The small leaf is a Card-io peg stamp - as you can probably see, I always have a hard time getting a clear image from it, I think the wood may be at a slight angle as it always seems lighter on the same side. But then, nothing in nature is even all over, is it? The sentiment is from a Creative Expressions snowdrop set and is probably my current favourite sentiment.
There are lots and lots of Autumn challenges around at the moment, so I'm sharing this card with:
