I saw some huckleberries while hiking this summer. That's kind of unusual because where I go, the bears usually get to them first. They inspired me to make this card. I also got inspiration from a card by PaulieY.
I used the leaves stamp with Versamark to stamp the BG. I cut the image panel out using deckle-edged scissors. The leaves in the image were stamped using the stamp off technique for the lighter leaves, and fully inked for the foreground ones. To get the shading in the berries I purposely didn't cover the berries totally with ink, so some white would appear on the edges of some of the berries. Then I outlined them and some of the leaves with a black Sharpie.
There are three purple rhinestones at the bottom of the card, but they look like brads in the photo.

Judy, your card is so beautiful. It makes me want yummy huckleberries. Our bears and elk have eaten all ours, but we have plenty of other berries in our "fenced" garden. BTW, I love your ribbon and brads for embellishment and how you did not coverup your beautifully stamped images. TFS
