A Face in the Leaves...




The stamps I used in this card are from Stampland Stamps... I used glossy card stock and a big leaf stamp that I inked in kaleidacolor ink (Autumn Leaves). I stamped the leaves around the outside of the card-stock and then stamped the face image in the middle using basic black. Then I brushed on green marvy ink over the top. I layered a background border of leaves stamped the same way and added corners and a butterfly punch that I put dots on the wings...

Have a great Day... Thats for looking!!!!
