Passion for Papertrey - Wonderful Wildlife challenge

I've been waiting for a challenge over on the Passion for Papertrey blog that I can make the most of since my Papertrey stuff arrived at Christmas, and finally, a challenge made for me!!!
I love all things natural and tree like so this challenge is right up my street, and I imagine I shall be taking part more than once!

The first offering I have is a card which uses the Leaf Print dies and uses their negatives. It took a little time (and more than one attempt!) to get the leaves to fit onto the DL size card I was using! Once I was happy with the layout I layered it over some bamboo type background paper in a lovely rusty/autumn colour. I sponged with tea dye distress ink and added a brown ribbon and small labels 4 Nestie onto which I'd stamped a waltzingmouse sentiment.
I hope you like my natural card and are inspired to use the negative dies!


  1. Hi there

    I love your site with all the lovely blogs you put up.
    I have a little something for you. To find out what your surprise is, please have a look over on my blog.



  2. Great acrd, I love how you have created the leaves, beautiful x

  3. THis had me mesmerized for a few moments, figuring out how you did this. I like the way you arranged the leaf dies so you could layer the textural-looking paper behind them. Gorgeous.

  4. This is so fabulous and so perfect for the challenge!
    Have a great day, hugs Karin

  5. So happy you've found the chance to play along with us!
    I love your work with those negative die cuts!
