It’s Blended!

Nancy here with you today to share a quick and easy (and late) Mother’s Day card with you!

Scrap ‘n Stamp Canada is doing another month long word of the day challenge.  For today, the prompt is “Blended” so I did some ink blending on a card I made for a friend to give to her daughter for her first Mother’s Day!

Here’s a look at the graphic for all the days of May, in case you missed it!

I had fun playing with colours on this card… I sure hope that they go together.  I miss having my friend Bonnie over to help me with decisions!

I started with placing my cardstock behind my stencil… my stencil is the one that has the sunburst more in the corner so I played around a bit to get it more centred from left to right.  I love Purple Tape for this!  I then blended on some pink and yellow Gina K inks and it created more of an orange than I had hoped for thanks to getting the pink on more of the stencil than I had planned.  I cut the letters from some purple glitter paper and stamped the sentiment underneath.  And in a strange twist of events (for me) I stuck with the yellow card instead of just doing a layer.

*Carstock:  Neenah Solar White; Lawn Fawn Sunflower; purple glitter from my stash
