Friends Card with The Stamps of Life


Today, I felt like working on my blending technique so I pulled out a piece of Bristol card stock and some Distress inks and made this background:

I am not the strongest blender but I have found better success overall with Bristol Vellum paper. It seems that the ink takes a second to sink into the paper so I have the opportunity to move the ink around before it makes the dreaded circle in the middle of your paper! Has that ever happened to anyone else???

I wasn’t too concerned about it being perfect either because I ended up using it for a die cut.

I used the Sizzix Friends Background Dies and my precision base plate to cut it out.

I mounted it onto Harvest Gold paper from Papertreyink.

Guava seam binding was added to the side and 3 acrylic flowers were added onto top of the die cut flowers.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am entering this card in the SSS Monday Challenge Splash It On and SSS Wednesday Blog Challenge Showers and/or Flowers.
