French Foliage Revisited

I had so much fun last week playing with my French Foliage set that I decided to play with it some more over the weekend. These colors make me think of Fall and I am so wishing for cooler weather -- the kind where you need a sweater, not too cool, not too hot.  Last week it was 90-100 degrees here.  Whew!  Too hot for me in September.

I started my card by stamping my leaf in Cajun Craze in random places around my Very Vanilla cardstock.  Cajun Craze it not a color I usually gravitate to but in the last week I've been reaching for it a lot.  Then I used the same stamp and used Pumpkin Pie.  My green leaf was stamped with Old Olive. Something else that can be done, which I did not do on this card, is to sponge the same colors all over the images.  I did try it on another card I made over the weekend but I didn't like the effect.  I have done this with other stamps though and it can have a very beautiful effect.  My sentiment is from a new stamp set called Friendly Phrases in the Idea Book and Catalog.
