More Pretty Leaves

Hello & welcome. I have 4 leaf print cards to share with you today.Slide08I have been enjoying using REAL LEAVES to stamp with recently. There is so much beauty in creation and I find it fun & challenging to try and capture a little bit of it on paper.

Slide01

So, yesterday I inked up some leaves from my yard with some Craft/white ink and/or with red & yellow re-inkers and 3 different Stickles colors (which added some texture to this first card) and then stamped with them.  I’m very happy with how these cards turned out.

Slide02I’d like to play this card at Virginia’s View Challenge #20 and SSS Monday: Thanks/Thankful.

Slide03

I love how nature sings of God’s glory and mercy. I have also been doing some sketching recently too, trying to capture some of the beauty of creation through drawing some of the flora in my yard.

Slide1

I’d like to play this at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #210: Anything Goes.Slide07 Slide2

Slide04

I’d like to play this last card at CASology’s Challenge: Pretty.Slide05 Slide06
