Soft Leaves

I'm just squeaking in with a card for this week's Just Add Frames challenge at Just Add Ink.  I also used the colors at Dynamic Duos which are yellow and soft green.   When I went to save the graphic to write this post, I saw the challenge colors were So Saffron and Pistachio Pudding.  I went from memory and used So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz, so apologies to the Dynamic Duos team for my shonky memory!

My frame was made using masking tape and sponging within the rectangle with both So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz inks.  While the mask was still in place, I stamped some images from French Foliage in Crumb Cake ink.  I then removed the mask and stamped the postmark images, also in Crumb Cake.  Finally, I stamped some leaves in Pear Pizzazz.

I layered this panel onto Pear Pizzazz then wrapped some White Baker's Twine around before mounting onto the card base using dimensionals.

All up, this card only took about 20 minutes (which is quick for me!).

Thanks for looking.
