Well, some of you might remember that I am working on using up the Gelli prints sheets from the other day. This one is created from one of the run off sheets. 2 different ones to be exact but I think they make a lovely combination together.

I embossed the background with my wood grain embossing plate, topped off with a little bit of ink to help bring out the texture.
 My favorites are the leaves which I fussy cut out after embossing!

Your leaves are beautiful Sandee but so is that background! A stunning card. I'm taking a gelli plate class soon to see if I like it - can't wait to try it! Hope you are well.
Hugs, Juliaxx

Simply a lovely Father's Day card. Love the patina on the leaves and woodgraining. Maybe you will do a tutorial on the pitt artist technique..(have some, unused!) Just getting into gelatos. Really admire this beautiful card, with all the textures. So happy you joined in at the Playground. Don't forget to see the Deco cow (or ?bull?). Beautiful day in Upstate SC, bet it was in your area too. Hugs
