Greetings! Today’s card uses the new Leaf Frame stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. This is pretty simple card to replicate, and it only uses 3 colors of ink. But because there are two different techniques used in applying the inks, it looks like you’ve got more than just 3.

I did some minimal ink blending with Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed, and Carved Pumpkin Distress Inks on white cardstock. I found a circle die that was pretty close to being the perfect size to cut out the inked Leaf Frame. On a piece of Smooth Bristol cardstock, I used the same 3 colors, but I dipped them. I applied the colors to my craft mat, then I spritzed them with water, and dipped the Bristol into the ink. I dried the paper, then re-dipped, continuing the process until I was happy with the results.
I adhered those two layers on to a brown card base, then die cut my Pinkfresh Studio sentiment. I of course needed some sparkle, so I added a few sequins from Doodles Paper Playground‘s Leaf Peeping Sparkle Blend.
