What materials did you use? Cardstock, acrylic paint, paintbrush, leaf from outside, embossing ink, heat gun, embossing powder (in silver)

What are you most proud of? The way the leaf turned out and how the veins and texture really show

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have your materials, you know how to emboss and just have fun. If you are planning to give the card to someone, make sure your practice a few times so you know how to do it and everything will flow easy. Of course it's different each time but that's what is so fun! Try other materials and email me how your project turns out at mckennaoncraftsy@gmail.com! HAVE FUN!

By the way, the embossed leaf turns out much shinier, I just took the picture outside and the sun was glaring. I also took a paint brush that had some excess paint left after I washed the paint off the brush and ran it over the embossing which gave it more of an aged look!

Did you just use the leaf as your stamp?
