Autumnal Thank You

Hello! And happy Monday.  It's Designer Team Blog Week on the Hero blog, and today I have a card featured that fits in with this month's contest - Autumn!  This card features stamps from the new Scattered Leaves Digikit.  I printed the leaves in green on white cardstock then inked the edges with Peeled Paint and Walnut Stain distress ink. Then I added stitching to create the veins on the leaves...
The background stamp was atered to sepia then printed on kraft.  Again, I inked the edges but this time with Pumice Stone ink. Love me my distress inks although it's getting a bit embarrassing going to school with ink stained hands...
Autumnal Thank You
The sentiment on this card is from the Many Thanks Digikit.
(More info on the card HERE if you want it.)
Oh, and someone asked about kraft card and my printer.  I just buy the 8 1/2 x 11 sheets (from THIS shop) and stick them in my A4 printer.  They fit fine.  Or I trim 12 x 12 down to size. Easy.
See you tomorrow... it's digikit release day. Yay!
