Back in saddle

Oy...it's been a rough Autumn with health issues & complications but I think have finally settled out & get back to the serious play of crafting ;-)...  First up have a set of thank-you cards for the nurses & medics that have treated me in the past few months.  I did all 3 in the same simple design with Distress inks & a few embellishments:

I think my favorite part is the clear embossing of the leaves on the card base which was a happy accident.  I sponged Distress Embossing Ink through a leaf stencil (by Echo Park) and then intended to coat with Sticky Embossing Powder (in order to use foil leafing) but on the first one grabbed the clear powder instead.  I decided I liked the clear/ faux resist look better because it allowed the watercoloring to stand out so I used clear powder on the other two as well!
