Masked Maple leaves

Hello all, my second post of the day. It was an urge to make this card, the idea hit me while I started to prepare my dinner, and I made card in between the dinner preparations.....couldn't help it ;) lol

Ok it is a one layer card, few weeks I shared sponged autumn leaves card, using a negative as stencil...for today's card, I used the same maple leaf as my MASK....and used the same distress inks - forest moss, vintage photo, crushed olives, and fired brick to sponge around the masked leaf. I decided to stamp the sentiment in one of the leaves, the sentiment is from ME- water blooms.
I kind of love the look of this card, hope you all like it too.

  4. Excellent masking Rahmat and the perfect colours for Autumn. Stamping the sentiment in the leaf is an inspired idea and looks fabulous. Thanks for joining TO and fusion x

  5. Sponging out from the leaf mask is a very cool effect. Looks great!

  6. This is brilliant - it works so well and different colours could make completely differently themed cards - even with the same leaves!
