Blended Scene





               This is a single layer card .... starting on white card stock I taped off the top and bottom of the front face.  I blended Distressed Inks in Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Shaded Lilac, Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo.  I stamped the silhouette of the flowers with Black StazOn with a stamp by Fiskars and then added by hand more grass and flowers with a black sharpie.  I cleaned up the base line with a ruler and black sharpie.
I stamped the birthday sentiment with black StazOn and clear embossing powder to lift it just a bit.
All on a single top fold of white CS.



I would like to add this to the following challenges if I may please:

Through the Purple Haze:  Peaceful
Addicted to Stamps : Make Your Mark
Simon Says: Create a Scene
Polkadoodles: Summertime
Four Crafty Chicks = Flowers
AAA Cards ... Favorite Stash ... love my stash of inks
Tuesday Throwdown = Single Layer
