I had fun doing the quick BG with distress ink pad and a paper roll for the coffee rings.
The beans were stamped with vintage photo DI and then coloured with vintage photo distress marker.
Interesting how the colours vary between the two.
The Jim's Coffee lable is from a Whimsy BG stamp that I cut apart.
Beans and spoon are Inkadoo

A birthday card for my brother who I seldom see hence the double sentiment.
The background paper reminded me of a blanket, so I ran the corners into my crimper
and then set it onto some watercoloured lawn.
Used Just Rite Stamps and dies.
Wow I'm surprised, this is my 100th post. :)

To do Leaf printing you must first find some leaves.
I chose Mountain Ash Leaves for this one.
This can be a bit messy so cover your work surface with paper.
I found brayering the ink (Gumball green)onto leaves worked best.
Carefully pick up leaves turn them and place ink side down
onto white cardstock.
Now lay a piece of scratch paper on top of the
leaves and pat paper as if smoothing it out over top of the leaves.
Lift paper then leaves and viola
your leaf print is done.
Repeat print as many times as needed to fill your page.
For finishing my designer cardstock I added some lighter green (Pear pizzazz )along stems.
Then spritzed some Gold Smootch all over.
Then I scrunched up a scrap of terry towel to randomly daub a variety of colour.
(Early espresso, Chocolate chip, Cajun craze & More mustard)
To complete I edged it with the Gumball green and then again lightly
in Cajun craze.
Experiment with other colours or shapes. Let me know how it works for you.
Thanks for your visit!
