Card & Cuppa Plus – Leaves from Rooted in Nature

Today I’m sharing the final project I haven’t yet shown you from my face-to-face classes. Everything after this point will be from virtual sessions.

This is from my Card and Cuppa Plus class and used the leaves from Rooted in Nature.

I decided that this project should have a more masculine feel to it, so opted for to use the leaves from Rooted in Nature and the co-ordinating Nature’s Root Dies.

My colour combination is Mint Macaron, Pacific Point and Crumb Cake, with Very Vanilla. I wasn’t sure about the combination to begin with as I thought the Pacific Point would overwhelm the project. However, by only using the colour for the largest leaf, it works really well.

A masked area was inked using a Sponge Brayer and Crumb Cake to create the ombre effect. For some extra detail, this was then stamped onto with the leaves and a variety of different generations of stamping.

One the mask was removed, a couple of pieces of Linen Thread were wrapped around the top and bottom to highlight the section.

The leaves in the centre are embossed and cut using the Nature’s Root Dies. The embossing was then enhanced by using a Sponge Dauber and Crumb Cake ink.

These were then attached to the project using Dimensionals to make them stand out.

Finally, a sentiment from the fabulous Label Me Bold Stamp Set was added.

I think this project would look great in other colour combinations, from subtle through to brights.

Happy crafting
