Hello all, This is probably one of my favourite cards so far. I stamped the leaf image, from a crea motion wood stamp. I had this stamp .. since forever o think, never used it so far.
The trick is to stamp with distress inks, the outline, then go in with a brush and pull the colors from the lines. Then add more color for the shading. Also stamp in different shades of green, that fade out towards the margin.
