Thanks for this great challenge, peeps321! I have waaaaaaaay more leaf and tree stamps than I do flower stamps. BUT, I decided to try stamping using real leaves instead, like I've seen others do. One great example is by Karen using Brushos: Fallen Leaf by k dunbrook at Splitcoaststampers
Since our leaves are dry and brittle now, I picked two leaves from our yard and ran them under some water to moisten them and then patted them dry with a paper towel. Then I used a paint brush to randomly "paint" some DOX inks onto the side of each leaf that had the most prominent veins. I spritzed the painted leaves with water and pressed them by hand on my cream A2 card front, rubbing a few areas to get good coverage. I think I used a little too much water on the more purple leaf as the veins didn't show up as well. (I'd also like to try this with freshly fallen leaves that are less dried out.)
I let those impressions dry and then splattered the card using ground espresso DOX ink. Finally I used StazOn Timber Brown to stamp the sentiment. TFL!
