Layered Leaf Background

Hello friends. I am here today posting for Blank Page Muse.  I loved the variety of leaves in the Leaves Rubber Stamp Set Sheet by Terri Sproul. My design centers around multiple leaves stamped in different Distress Ink colors.

I wanted an unusual color combination, so I selected Olive Green, Seedless Preserves and Fossilized Amber. 

I began by stamping the center leaf on a cream colored A2 sized cardbase. I recommend always starting in the middle and working your way out so you don't end up with an open space. After inking up the stamps, I spritzed to allow movement. I overlapped the stamps for interest. 

I love encouraging stamps and this one was perfect for this card! I clear heat embossed the sentiment using Seedless Preserves ink on Kraft Cardstock. After trimming it down, I cut a piece of cream cardstock 1/2 inch wider than the strip by 4.25 inches. I inked the edges in Seedless Preserves and mounted the sentiment strip on top.

I trimmed the stamped piece to 3.75 x 5 inches. I cut another piece of cream cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches and inked the edges with Seedless Preserves. This provides a great base for the stamped piece. The last step was to assemble the 3 base layers and add the sentiment strip.
