really a leaf

Stencilling is a lot of fun, and using natures own products to stencil makes a card so individual.  Especially using a leaf, because there will never be another one exactly the same!
For this card I used distress inks in several colours to stencil the leaf onto grey card (the leaves I used are liquidambar AKA sweet-gum).  Then I used a spray bottle with diluted reinker, and yes the blobs are intended - I had to do them with a wooden skewer dipped in the bottle. Stamped sentiment, which I did in two parts which kind of makes a link between the leaves.
Anyway I hope you like it, and if you haven't tried it, have a go!
