Elegant Leaves

I chose to make a couple of cards using a variety of colours with one stamp and a sentiment.
The first is Potting Soil Archival for stamping and Peeled Paint ink for water colouring. I heat set the Potting soil to make sure it was set and wouldn't run.
For the second I stamped the leaf with Vermillion Archival Ink and water coloured with a variety of Fired Brick and Mustard Seed Distress Inks.
This card was made using the Potting Soil and Mustard Seed inks.
I love the shape of these leaves and they make great backgrounds. I've had great fun using them and there's five more fantastic stamps in this set.
Thanks for visiting

I love this collection Debbie and the gorgeous colours you've chosen to make them with.

These are delightful - I love the way you've shown the different variations by altering the colours & sentiments used with basically the same layout. The matting adds such lovely cohesion & contrast (if that's not a contradiction of terms). I particularly like the red one but that could be my penchant for the sentiment's font! The watercolouring is a super touch really adding individuality to each design.

PS - I think I've decided that the brown one is my favourite after all!
