Foliage

Happy Tuesday Everyone!
This time I want to share with you two cards inspired by the challenge Less is More #184. This week is One Layer Week and we are invited to use foliage. To comply with the challenge requirements I'll link up only this card:



For this card I stamped the sentiment in pigment ink and heat embossed it with a clear embossing powder. Then heat embossed the fern in white. To finish off I masked the stamped images and sprayed white and red mists and scattered three enamel dots. Here is a closer look to embossed images:


I love the glossy look of enamel dots and embossing.

And here is another foliage card, but I missed the one layer requirement, thus I share it without linking up to the challenge.


I heat embossed a leaf in bronze and simply water-coloured it. This stamp is fantastically suitable for water-colouring because of delicate veins pattern. The paint does not leak, the process is more under control.


Bronze embossing delivers sufficient degree of dignity, so I omitted any embellishments.
Thanks for visiting!
