Leaf Stamping?!?

Did you know you can stamp with leaves? Yeah, you totally can. You can do it any time of year, but I always have the urge to this time of year. 

These cards were stamped with an actual leaf and white ink. Aren't they lovely? And now for a close up...
It's one of my favorite techniques, and oh yeah...it's FREE. Gotta love that!

Head on out to your yard or park and gather some leaves. It's a fun technique!
(Just make sure your leaves aren't dried out or they'll crumble)
