I held a class this week where we made Sympathy cards and Get well cards, because you never know when you’re going to need them and it’s good to have some on hand. We created this beauty using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, one ink pad and a blender pen. I so adore the Night of Navy and Whisper White color combination.
Today’s Color Palette
Let’s Take a Closer Look
Normally, when you use a Blender Pen with ink, you pick up some ink on the tip of your Blender Pen and color it around to fill in the area of your choice. For this card, I stamping the image in Night of Navy ink and then colored the flowers with a Blender Pen without picking up any ink. Simply by coloring the Blender Pen over the stamped image, the pen picks up a bit of the ink that was stamped and allows you to spread that color where you want it. It gives us a lighter shade of the Night of Navy. Pretty cool, right?
Stampin’ Studio Tips
Measurements: Night of Navy: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″, 3″ x 4″, and 1″ x 2-1/4″ Whisper White: 4″ x 5-1/4″, 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″, and 7/8″ x 2-1/8″
Tip: The trick to balance on a card is to allow the eyes to travel around the card in a triangle. In this triangle is the sentiment and the two rows of rhinestones. It’s a great way to create balance.
