Ink Blending & Stencils

For this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge, I created a card that combined spring colors and floral accents.  I haven't done much ink blending in the past because I felt that I really wasn't very good at it.  However, Betsy provided a great step by step video that helped me quite a bit.  I combined Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, and Spring Moss ink for my background and used a chevron stencil along with those inks as well.  I used the rectangular frames from the Sprinkles & Shakers kit and some of the preprinted flowers and leaves from the new Color Pop Florals set.  A Hugs die cut and stamped banner finish the card.  I really like how it turned out and am now feeling a bit more confident about my ink blending abilities.
