This card had MANY UGLY phases, you know that moment your card is so bad you are tempted to toss it out! I persevered and I must say, “I WON!” I really like how the final card is. Maybe I should have taken pictures of all the many UGLY phases this card took. This card started with that embossed maple leaf that I watercolor, I have had that stamp for more than 10 years. I decided then to apply some embossing ink/powder to the brick colored leaf to add texture.
