This card turned out better than I thought it would when I was thinking about it. It looks like the tree and leaf were made to fit together. Can you believe the tree is from Sheltering Tree stamp set and the leaf is from the Leaflets Framelits.
To do the leaf I made a stencil from the Leaflets Framelits. I took the biggest leaf and cut it out of whisper white card stock. I then used the Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron inks to sponge in the colors. I first used the So Saffron all over the leaf opening to give me a base to start off with. Then I just started adding the other colors in without any particular order.
HINT: start rubbing the dauber on the stencil before you put it on your paper you are using for your card. Sometimes if you start right on the card piece it can be too dark. If you get some of the ink off first before you put it on the card you will get a softer look. You can always add more, you can't take away.
It was fun to see how everyone's was different in class. They all turned out so beautiful!
