LoVe this card!

I made this card for the fall issue of Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine... I love it!!
The tiny leaf stamps and sentiment are Impression Obsession Branches of the Tree set and I used the rock and roll stamping technique to get a two toned look.

Rock and Roll Technique
Supplies: 2 different colours of ink, and stamp
Ink your stamp in the lightest colour, next ink the same stamp by rolling in a circular motion being careful not to ink the center of the image with the darker colour. Stamp on paper and that's it! Gives you an awesome two toned effect without the harsh lines... it really blends nicely. I used SU pumpkin pie and old olive for the leaves
