This is using the serendipity technique. Quick directions: creation direct to paper background in colored ink on white cardstock, stamp the images in black, heat emboss with clear embossing powder, cut into 1” squares and create the background/panel shape.
The leaves are colored with re inkers and artist brush, cut out, black marker around the edges and attach to the card.
Ink distressing was done on the plain colored panels and tool distressing on the black largest and smallest panels.
