Hi there! Today I have a card for this week's Papertrey Ink Make it Monday Challenge. This week's challenge was to make an ink blended ombre background with stenciling.
I went with a green ombre background, using Mint Julep, Vintage Jadeite, and New Leaf Inks from Papertrey Ink. I used my ink blending tool to add those to the panel of white cardstock and then laid my stencil over my background and added the pattern using the same inks and my ink blending tools. Next I stamped the book in black ink and then masked it off to stamp the flowers and grass coming out of the book. (I made a card back in 2011 with the book and the flowers that I kind of ripped off for this card. It's been 5 years and it's still one of my favorite cards!) I colored the book with Copic Markers, stamped the sentiment in black ink, and then finished the panel off with some rain stones. I mounted the panel on a Berry Sorbet card base and it was done!
I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and got to hear the baby's heartbeat, which is always a relief. I'm 14 weeks (and 4 days) along and everything is looking good! I tried to have a semi date night last night with my husband. We rented Ted from Redbox and made it about 30 minutes through before we couldn't take it anymore and turned it off. I just don't like comedies anymore I guess, just nerd movies and Disney movies, (and the best nerd movies are owned by Disney! Marvel > DC!)
Anyways, I will hopefully be back with a card tomorrow. (hopefully because I don't have anything actually ready yet, but maybe today during nap time or tonight after Bree goes to bed I can spend some time in the studio!) Have a fantastic day!
