For less is more - foliage

Hello lovely bloggers,

Hope you had a nice weekend...

I managed to make a few cards with great ease and that made me happy!!!

And now to this card that I made this afternoon for Less is Morehttp://simplylessismoore.blogspot.co.uk/ - just before I went to pick up Aleeza from school.
The two pictures are of the same card but the second one was clicked on the high density mode - see the difference.

I put it through my Cuttlebug and then stamped the leaf in the centre as it kind of looked a bit blank in the centre. The leaf is from a clear Hero Arts stamp set and it was stamped in Olive vine. I sponged it with Tim Holtz crushed olive and wild honey. 
The sentiment is handwritten with a brown Staedler pen and Sakura gold gel pen over that.
I went over the embossed outline with Sakura gold gel pen and it looks really nice in real life.






Will come and visit a little later on...

Love,

Monica

That's a great embossing folder Monica... I quite like it when only the raised part of the embossing is highlighted.
Thanks so much
