Leaf Cluster

Back to masculine card again.  I inked the stamp with two different ink colors to give it a little more interest.  Tied some raffia around the image panel and tied the button and tag on with same piece.

Hero Arts -- Leaf cluster stamp
Spellbinders -- Labels 22, A2 Distressed Edges dies
DCWV -- Rustic Stack paper
Distress ink -- Pealed paint (for card base)
Memento -- Dessert sand (around image panel)
Taylored Expression -- Designer mini tag dies and Many mini occasions stamp

Well our router is acting up, so I am having to type this all up on my hubby's computer and I am totally not use to it, so I will end now.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

This is so beautiful, Connie! I love the stamp and how you inked it. The raffia is a perfect companion. This card works well for either gender, I think. Just gorgeous!

You know with the darker ink on some of the leaves - it almost has the look of a poinsettia! Great design Connie!
