I used three colors to blend: Seaglass, Ocean Mist, and Key Lime. I used blending brushes. The rose was masked before blending the stencil. After blending, I stamped the rose using my Misti. I chose not to color the rose, as I thought the background had enough color. I chose not to place a greeting on the front. This way, I can use this card for anything needed.
