Artful Gumleaves

I never get tired of creating cards using this old Stamp-it design of framed eucalyptus leaves. For the red card, I just stamped the design onto some card which I’d coloured with Distress Stain sprays (Wild Honey, Fired Brick & Cracked Pistachio). I used a combination of watercolour pencils and chalks to colour in with, then added Rouge Liquid Pearls to highlight the flowers and some Wild Honey Distress Stickles on the gumnuts. I love the green of the central leaf veins in this one.

The blue card I did in a similar way, stamping onto a Distress Oxide background (Salty Ocean, Carved Pumpkin & Squeezed Lemonade). I embossed the script wording behind with Distress powders. I just used watercolour pencils to colour the leaves and gumnuts, and Cantaloupe Liquid Pearls over the gumnut flowers.
