Tweet Leaves

Half way through the week already! Today's card is made using a really cute individual stamp called Tweet Leaves from the Autumn/Winter catalogue (pg31). I used the rock'n'roll technique with three colours of ink: Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede. I started with Pumpkin Pie as it's the lightest colour, then added a thick roll of Poppy Parade and then a tiny bit of Soft Suede around the very edges.

TIP: So long as you always roll in the lightest colour to the strongest colour you won't ruin your ink pads.

The image was stamped onto white shimmer card. So sweet and quick to stamp! This then had the corners rounded using my trusty corner rounder punch and was layered onto Soft Suede cardstock. The thin border allowed the colour to be seen more strongly at the corners. Scallop borders were then added to each side in Pumpkin Pie and mounted onto a Poppy Parade base. Naturally a few rhinestones are added for some bling and ta-dah! It's finished!!
