City Crafter Challenge Blog - Turning a New Leaf



This week at City Crafter, Stella  has challenged us to add a leaf or leaves. 


For my DT project I used a very old stamp by PSX (long gone I think ) , and embossed it using copper ep. Then I painted it with Twinkling H2Os so it shimmers in real life.  I stamped the poem - I believe it's all about the beauty of nature , so I thought it would go well. 

Our Guest Designer this week is Agnes so I hope you'll come over to City Crafter, see what she and the rest of the DT have made, and enter your own project. 

I'd like to enter:
Time Out  thanks Sandie
Just Add Ink  p for poetry
Simply Create fall colours 
Retro Rubber stamp is many years old.
