This card is a mass of stamp overlays and there is no right or wrong way to stamp it. It is whatever catches your eye. The example card will show you how I layered my stamps.
Starting with the Whisper White layer (3 3/4" x 5") stamp the French Foliage word stamp on the center right hand side of the layer using Olive Green ink.
Using the Medium size blob stamp (narrow and long) from Work of Art Stamp Set, ink in Pacific Point ink and lightly stamp off and stamp the card two times. See example of Card for placement.
Using the Oak leaf and the Cajun Craze ink, stamp two oak leafs one at an angle in the upper left quadrant of the card pointing towards the left upper corner.
The 2nd Oak Leaf is stamped in the mid to lower left region of the card pointing more to the side of the card.
The circle stamp in the Work of Art Stamp Set is inked with Pumpkin Pie ink and is stamped at the tip of the Oak leaf point towards the left upper corner of the card, the middle right of the leaf, the middle left off to the side of the Oak leaf and at the bottom of the oak leaf just overlapping the stem. See card example.
The water drop stamp in the French Foliage Stamp Set is inked with Pacific Point Ink and is strategically placed around the card layer, refer to the card example.
The smaller leaf in the French Foliage Stamp Set is stamped in Old Olive and stamped off on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped on the card layer by the 2nd Oak Leaf towards the middle of the leaf and pointing upwards.
The Medium size leaf (looks like a heart) in the French Foliage Stamp Set is inked with the stampin markers, the center is colored with the Old Olive marker, the right side is colored with the Cajun Craze Marker, and the left side of the leaf is colored with the Pumpkin Pie marker.
This leaf is stamped in the lower left corner of the layer with the point of the leaf pointing towards the corner of the layer. There is another image of the same stamp with the Cajun Craze, and the Pumpkin Pie colors swapped to the opposite leaf side than that of first leaf that was stamped. This second leaf is stamped overlapping the end of the 1st leaf and is pointing into the same direction. See Card example for placement.
The Sentiment "Thinking of You" from the Wetlands stamp set is inked in black and stamped about a third of the way down the card on the right side. See card example for placement.
