Love the Limited Supply Challenge today. I only recently got the Autumn Leaf Prints set, and I LOVE it, so I love having any excuse to use it. I used several quick techniques on this card. The leaf was stamped using multiple marker colouring/blending, then shadowed with watercolouring. I masked the leaf to stamp the label. The cocoa layer is a collaged stamping of all the leaves in this set. The bottom is a form of kissing. I inked up Aida Cloth in Sahara Sand, and stamped the oak leaves directly onto the background stamp in chocolate chip. It's really cool how up close you don't notice the leaves so much, but farther away, they really pop. I also used polyshrink to make the little oak leaf charm. I love that stuff for making perfectly coordinated embellishments!
