The Florida Stampers are leafing it this month - we created cards using leaves. The leaves could be anywhere on the card, and used in any manner (stamped, stickers, designer paper, die cuts, etc). Hence my Clean and Simple card.
The Vellum has dry embossed leaves on it (that's why the leaf veins appear white). Under the vellum is a white piece of cardstock with randomly smooshed chalk (pastels). The chalk was applied with a highly technical device called a cotton ball. :-)
The inside image is stamped with another oldie crying out to be used: Memories solvent based dye ink pad Barn Red color. Then image is entirely colored with chalks (one of my favorite coloring mediums). I prefer the softer look of watercolors when applying the chalks. That's why the color is deliberately outside of the lines.
This swap card has been mailed to temporarily transplanted Florida Stampers member Rita Held who is residing in Kansas, much to our chagrin. The sentiments were embossed with a platinum embossing powder which contains chunky glitter.
Thanks for stopping by to see creations done with more "old stuff" stashed in the crafting closet and whining to be used!
