Ink Blending and the Calla Lily (Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society)

Hello everyone, welcome back!

It's slowly creeping towards warmer weather here in Australia, and I am hanging out for some sunshine! In trying to hurry on the happiness of spring, I've made two colourful cards using the new Calla Lily stamp from Technique Tuesday. 

This first card is fairly simple to make. 
I started out with ink blending the backround of the card using my Simon Hurley Create ink pads. This time I choose to blend the full rainbow colours onto white cardstock. 

I then took a circle die from Sizzix and die-cut the center out of the cardstock. I put aside the circle as I can use it another time.

I then stamped the Calla Lily onto the card base, stamped the sentiment onto the blended background and layered the top panel over the flower with foam tape.

For this next card I did a blended side-strip for the background with three colours from the ink range. I also added flecks onto the card base by adding water and mixing it with some ink on plastic. 

I coloured the Calla Lily with my Nuvo markers, and then cut it out with the corresponding die.
I then took a piece of blue ribbon that matched the ribbon on the flowers and added it to the card front, flipping the card over and adhering the extra to the underside of the card. 

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink and adhered the floral and front to a card base.

This is all fairly simple today folks! Hope you enjoy, these don't take too long to make.

Have a great day and I'll see you in the next blog post!

Until next time, 
Shana xx
