Just Us Girls #257 WORD WEEK!

The word for this challenge is Leaves.  Well, I had already done this card using Gorjuss stamp Ruby.  I stamped her once and decided that I would do it again, but this time, without the cat on her lap.  It worked out well and this is what I started with. 
She is water colored with Distress inks and Then I added leaves.  Long story here. 
I used an embossing folder with leaves, and water color paper and inks.  Once that was put thru my Big Shot, I didn't like it.  That lead to fussy cutting some of them out and adding more color and then I added then to the top of the image, as though she was swinging from a tree.  There is Wink of Stella on the leaves, and I wish you could see the card.  I found the tiniest buttons in my stash.

Here is Ruby without the cat on her lap.  How to use your stamps in different ways, got me thinking outside the box.

So glad you stopped by to take a look, I hope you have a great day, as the card says.
