This card features a beautiful outline and fill in combination. I used dark green ink for the outline of the leaf. Then I took my markers and scribbled on the outside of the solid leaf stamp with green and the inside with a grayish lighter green, leaving space between the two. I misted the stamp with a spritzer spray bottle and stamped the inside. I love how blotchy it looks, just like the leaves all over my driveway.
For the text, I took the saying “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf’s a flower,” and just inked the word “Autumn” with my marker. Since they are clear stamps, it is so easy to place the word exactly where I wanted it under the leaf. I used the whole text statement on the inside of the card.
