Leaf Fragments

When Tim Holtz shared his latest release, full of Halloween goodness, I grabbed the
 Leaf Fragments Dies as quickly as I could. I'm a sucker for leaves and the leaf fragments 
are such an original design--Tim said they were his favorite!--I just had to have them.

The leaves were die cut from watercolor paper and ink distressed with inks from Concord 
& 9th and The Stamp Market. I chose three leaves and spattered them with gold
 Kuretake watercolors.

To go with the tattered look on the leaves, I tore the edges of an embossed panel and 
adheredit to a white card base and spattered more gold ink over it. I adhered the leaves, 
then added the gold embossed sentiment.

These days, my crafting time has been drastically cut but I know I'll be making more
cards with these fun dies. Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. LEAVES me breathless, Donna! I will probably have to look into both the leaves, and that embossing folder! Thanks, my sweet enabler, you!

  2. OMG, your ink blending for the three leaves is absolutely gorgeous, Donna! I love this card! The background panel is perfect for the style of the leaves. The fine gold spatters here and there are wonderful touches.
