I tend to like my cards simple, but bold, and today's card follows that theme.
Dies, distress oxide inks, some pearl accents, and it's a wrap. Sounds like a great card, right? You be the judge:
Bright and bold, right? Here's how I did it, and the products I used (linked at the end of this post).
I used a vase and flower die for Die-Namites, and 6 shades of Distress Oxide ink, plus a word die.
I started by blending the background. I have found that a very smooth card stock works best for me. I started with the lightest colors first. In this case, it was the middle of the card, so it was the Squeezed Lemonade, then the Mustard Seed, the the Twisted Citron, then the Salty Ocean. After that, I switched back to the lower part of the card, blending the Barn Door, and lastly, the Seedless Preserves.
