Vintage Leaf meets Lovely as a Tree

The lovely Sarn shared a project recently,
that inspired this one.
I did this technique a long time ago,
but Sarn went to one of Eileen's workshops,
and as usual Eileen has taken it to another level.

Ink a bright....very bright..... background,
black out surrounding area and stamp into the shape.
I chose the all time favourite Stampin' Up! stamp set ever
(Lovely as a Tree), into the shape made with Leaflets Framelits.
I then stamped the edges of black with some little leaves from 
Perpetual Birthday Calendar.

Anyone know the name of this technique?
Is it black magic?

May as well enter the same autumnal challenges again!



  1. Fantastic technique, Lesley. I've no idea what it's called but it is very effective. elizabeth xx

  2. Now this is a wonderful creation, love the black with the orange and greens and the trees stamped in the leaf, very clever idea.
