Today's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Make it Colorful - fun right? My project features the Mama Elephant's Up and Away set and some soft ink blending.
I may have mentioned before that I have really been working on my ink blending a la Laura Bassen. She does a beautiful job. I really fight having those round ink blobs because I get too crazy. Anyway, Laura Bassen did a lesson on ink blending for the last OCC Background Check. Specifically, I wanted to work on blending in the center of the card. I was very pleased with the result but I need to keep practicing.
The cute monkey and umbrella from Mama Elephant Up and Away are colored with copics and cut with the matching dies. The sentiment is from the same set. The stitched lines across the bottom of the card are from the Technique Tuesday In Stitches set.
Thanks for visiting and happy inklings!
