Leaf Cluster

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a good weekend.

Today, I am sharing an all-occasion card that uses coffee filters. :-) 

I truly enjoy making leaves with the Tattered Leaves die by Sizzix/Tim Holtz and coffee filter paper (fresh, unused). The paper is thin, with a crinkly texture that lends a neat feel to the leaves. After die-cutting them, I laid them on a large piece of cardboard and spritzed various hues of Distress Ink sprays on them. Love seeing what colors emerge from this haphazard application. ;-)

One of the sprays has a bronze metallic tint to it, which is best seen in the photo above.

Thanks so much for coming by, and have a blessed week!

Beautiful, rich color on those coffee filter leaves, all splatty and earthy. Pretty on the Rich Razzleberry base, too. Love this, Colleen!
