Depth of Field Leaves



I was playing around with a new technique found in the Technique Junkies Newsletter called Depth of Field. This is a fun and easy technique, and I really love how it looks.

I just picked shades of green and stamped the leaf from my favorite set, Fantastic Foliage (long since retired from SU), and stamped the sentiment (from My Sentiments Exactly). I added some tiny chocolate pearls and some yummy chocolate organdy ribbon to finish this card off. I had to intentionally keep this card simple so you can see the neat background that I stamped. Why create a beautiful background and then cover it all up? :-)
