Bright and Colorful Leafy Stenciled Backgrounds

Good morning! Today I have a couple of cards to share using a beautiful stencil from Simon Says Stamp that I picked up from a previous release and hadn't had a chance to use yet - paired up with a fun sentiment set that had also seen very little ink! 

I used the Leafy Frame stencil in a bit of a different way - on each card I blended one color of distress oxide ink over the stencil, rotated it 90 degrees, then blended a different color over it. This gave a fun two layer effect - I love how it came out! I also added some white gold splatter with my Starry Colors Palette - the next two photos show that sparkle the best.

For this first card, I used Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers:

The second card used Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade:

I die cut each panel with Wonky Rectangles dies, then added my sentiments from CZ Design's Hello You Stamp Set. I matted each one with some coordinating SSS Cardstock, and then mounted on a white cardbase!
