Technique Tuesdays

Yesterday we saw this pretty fall Thank You card.

Today I am going to show you how easy it is to create colorful leaves
using a variation on the rock and roll technique.

After stamping your wreath base
Choose a few shades of coordinating ink. 
Start inking leaves with your lightest color I used Honey,

next without stamping the Honey ink off the stamp dab your stamp in various places
on the image in the next lightest color - for me Sunset

and finally dab again in the darkest color - Vineyard Berry
Stamp the leaves on your wreath and then repeat the inking and stamping process until you get the look you like.

Easy, simple and very pretty!

Come back tomorrow for some Words for Wednesday about Gratitude!
