Foliage Birthday Card – Runway Inspired Challenge ric#96

I found time over the weekend to create something for the latest Runway Inspired Challenge (ric#96).

Here is the inspiration look by Banana Republic:

I was inspired by the colors, and struggled to find an image in my collection. I ultimately settled on a retired Stampin’ Up! set  (Two Step Stampin’ Shapes and Shadows) that had two leaves (solid and outline). The coverage on the embossed outline of the leaves is a little spotty (because I stamped all the outlines before pouring embossing powder), but I think that plays well with the Distress Ink images.

Supplies: Stamps – Clearly Besotted, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Hickory Smoke, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves, VersaFine Smokey Gray, embossing powder – Ranger Liquid Platinum.
