I have not played with this technique in a very long time and thought I would give it another try. I have a beautiful Japanese Maple tree right outside my craft room window. When pressed the lovely red tinge leaves take on a purplish hue. I used a gray watercolor pencil in a few areas to give a shadow to the leaf.
I stamped the script from SU French Foliage (Retired) in Vintage Photo ink, stamping off once before stamping over the leaf. Sentiment is from Feathery Friends.
