Love is in the Air

So my online friend Tracey sent me a PM the other day "Can I Recruit You?" She is one of the very talented ladies on the Sew Many Cards Scrapbooking Layout DT. She was challenged to recruit at least one person to play along with this weeks challenge... I was honoured that she asked me!

The challenge was to use an old.. or new technique... the technique I used was to use ink to give dimension. First I cut the leaves out on the cuttlebug, then ran them through the embossing folder and then took 4 different colours and inked them to make them look more real. I also inked the edges of the stamp - and used the ink pad to soften the "white" of the paper. If you don't have a Pinecone Ink from Versa then I suggest you purchase one - it is simply the best colour for inking anything!

So here is a layout I did of my hubby and I. These pictures were taken last fall while we were at the pumpkin patch. I absolutely love them.. and that is saying a lot as I rarely like pictures of me. Must be the good camera! :)

Your leaves look so good. Almost like you picked them off of an Autumn Tree.
