I had pounded a bunch of stuff for the Mixed Media Challenge yesterday, but when I saw Dina's gorgeous leaf card I decided to try a leaf today. I took a cucuzza leaf from my garden and laid it onto a piece of watercolor paper and laid another piece over it. I put it between my plates and rolled it with all the tabs shut through my Big Shot. After pulling the leaf off, this is the impression I got! I laid the leaf back down over it and stamped my script using the leaf as a mask. I loved Dina's shading and though I'm not as excited by mine, I did get some depth using pencil shading. I stamped some Crumb Cake and Suede spatter around the leaf and a tiny bit of Pear spatter on it. My sentiment is stamped in Suede and the edges are sponged with it. I added a few glitter pen highlights to the leaf as well.
