I love the idea of monochromatic images, so this one is stamped in black and shaded in brown. If I remember right, I used Adirondack Espresso ink and applied it with a waterbrush.
The leaves are stamped using a faux watercolor technique done with Versamagic chalk inks...basically you mist the paper with water and stamp, let the whole thing dry, then ink and mist your stamp and overstamp the original impressions. It's a neat effect.
On the dark brown panel, I used a Castaway pad with the flourish images from the T.Y. Flourish set. Kinda neato! I guess it's just a surprise every time, seeing what color the images will turn out - in this case, for some reason, they turned green, so that became my color scheme for the card.
Not sure what that embellishment is supposed to be, but it was on sale at the Dollar Tree so I bought it. ;) It works here - I like the squareness of it.
