Less is More with Foliage in One Layer

Less is More

Less is More  issues the one-layer challenge again.  This time, the single layer needs to focus on foliage. 
I cut the leafy branch with a PoppyStamps die out of a background of watercolors and salt created by my 5-year-old great-niece.  The foliage was then inset into the card front, which was also embossed on the side with one of Tim Holtz's Alterations. The sentiment is from Power Poppy.

Hello Evelyn.
This is just delightful, the inlay looks fantastic and really pops, your embossing adds the extra interest wonderfully.

Beautiful way to add texture to a one layer card! Nicely done, Evelyn! Gosh, if your 5 yr old great-niece can do the salt background I suppose I could do it, too, right? It sure is pretty!

This is gorgeous! I used to do a lot of stamping.. not so much these days... are yours hand colored? I did mine with watercolors (at the time I was creating and selling watercolor paintings) and I also bought rubber stock and carved my own stamps, have you ever tried that as well??
