Gina K is hosting the Monthly Mix Challenge for September and has challenged us to create a background using ink cubes direct to paper. Although I haven’t invested in a lot of cubes, I was able to create my background using Sea Glass, Blue Lagoon, Tranquil Teal, Turquoise Sea and Applemint ink cubes. These were newer GKD colors and are colors that I enjoy so opted for the cubes for storage purposes. Any way….for my card today, I swiped the different colors across my cardstock ending with the Applemint, then added some Applemint to each of the other colors to add some interest. To me the background needed a little more interest so I pulled out GKD’s Leafy stencil and stenciled over that using Wild Dandelion. Why stop there? I then ran the stencil still attached to my cardstock through my Big Shot to dry emboss and add some more texture. Why stop there? Well, yes I did except for adding the sentiment and butterflies from GKD’s Birthday Blessings stamp and die set. LOL!! The butterflies were stamped in black onxy and sentiment in white pigment and added white embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Stay safe and have a great day!!
