This week's cue word at CASology is:
I've only used this leaf stamp a couple of times, mainly because I wasn't sure how to colour the whole image. But this time, I decided just to colour the leaves, seeing as they were the subject matter of this challenge. By keeping the rest of the image monochrome, it's faded into the background a little, and helped to keep the card reasonably CAS overall.
The other problem I had with the stamp was because of its shape, it's not ideal to be stamped directly onto the card base. So I stamped it onto spare white card, rounded the edges to mimic the stamp outline, then layered onto black and rounded those edges too. I quite like how it turned out, and I think I will be using this stamp more often.
The With Love sentiment is from Penny Black 30-105 Gratitude, and the leaf stamp is from Paper Inspirations K5008 Climbing Vine Botanical.
