Foliage Frame
by Jeanne Jachna

 Foliage-Frame-Six
It's a cold, windy, wet day here in the midwest so I thought I'd make my own sunshine!  I had lots of fun making this distressed card!  I love how a simple die cut from white card stock just pops on a colored background.   Want to make one of your own?
Foliage-Frame-Nine
I cut the Heart Pattern Plate from watercolor paper.  Next I inked it up with distress inks in  pastel colors (Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavender.

If you're happy with the inky blending you can stop here but I thought I'd kick it up a notch (LOL!).
Foliage-Frame-One
I splashed the background with water, let the distress ink soften and blotted up the water with a paper napkin.
Foliage-Frame-Two
I trimmed this panel slightly smaller than my A2 card base and noticed I was starting to loose some of the pieces (you can see a missing piece above)
Foliage-Frame-Three
I should have added a piece of tape to the back to hold everything in place before I started cutting.   Now you can do better than me when you try this! 
Foliage-Frame-Seven
I adhered the Massa Leaf Frame to the front of the card inserting the die cut window in place, and added some Stitched Bloom Trio Flowers.
Foliage-frame-Eight
I double cut the Scribble Hello sentiment from gold glitter and gold foil papers and layered them so you would see just a silhouette of sparkle.
Foliage-Frame-Five
The finishing touch was a sprinkle of sequins in gold to match the Scribble Hello sentiment, and some pearls for the Stitched Bloom Trio flower centers.
Foliage-Frame-Four
I hope you find some quiet time to create today!

Morning Jeanne, This card has brightened up my morning, here in the UK I have wind and rain, and yesterday morning I had frost then rain and sleet, yuck, bring on summer I say haha.
Your colours are beautifully uplifting and a great combination, my favourite heart pattern plate and the gorgeous frame and flowers, and I'm loving the glitter and foil combo on the hello die-cuts, so effective. I love it !!
Enjoy your day.
Lots of love from Patricia
