The first one was taught to me by Elisabeth, a DDM from the home office, at our recent event in Edwardsville. She showed us how to use our Blends on velum to create a cool striped look. It pairs so well with the Online Exclusive Tropical Leaf bundle. I created a reel to show you how to make this one.
For this card we actually colored with Blends around the outline of the image, instead of the image itself, and used the Color Lifter to pull the color further away. It both lightened the color and made it bleed out and away from the image more.
The image is created by first inking the full stamp in Fresh Freesia and then applying some Gorgeous Grape with a small Blending Brush. I also added a little color to the edges of the punched sentiment piece with my Blending Brush. I created a Reel for this one as well.
