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.
