Leaves, Leaves, Leaves!

 I really love leaves for stamping, and I'm not quite sure just why. I guess it's a nature thing, you know flowers, plants, animals. Anyway I also prefer realism in stamp images and this stamp set fits the bill. In this card I stamped the image on my Stamparatus with Pool Party ink, then applied some Bermuda Bay ink with a Sponge Dauber and finally added some Mossy Meadow. The Stamparatus makes it so easy to add multiple colors to a stamp with Sponge Daubers. After applying the colors, I embossed it with the Timeworn Type folder. The layer behind, is DIY DSP... that is I made my own designer paper with stamped images. I used the White Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon because I can color it any shade I like with a Stampin' Blend, our incredible alcohol ink markers.
