GARDEN BENCH - GINGKO LEAVES - CARD

Hi Everyone! Holly here, and I have a card using a new stamp, and washi tape.
A little ink, and a little cutting, and a stamp to top it off. 

Along the left edge of my white card base, I masked narrow strips and sponged DISTRESS INK.

I tore strips of WASHI TAPE and angled and overlapped them, leaving ends hanging off the edge of the card. Once I was sure of the positioning of the washi tape strips, I trimmed the ends even with the card edge. I stamped REMEMBERING YOU from the GARDEN BENCH STAMP SET, with Jet Black ARCHIVAL INK to the lower right side of the card.

Using the same DISTRESS INK as for the masked stripes, I stamped GINGKO LEAVES onto white card stock.

I cut the leaves out, gave them a slight curl by pulling them along my pinched finger and thumb,  brushed them with water to blur the ink a little, and soften the look. Then, I attached these leaves to an adhesive circle. More DISTRESS INK was sponged on the outer edges, and a button was adhered to the center.

The gingko 'flower' was then attached to complete the card.

I hope you enjoyed the making of this card, and decide to try it too.
Thank you for looking, and have a creative day!
