OLS13 - You Blend


It's so great to work with people who have a sense of humour! Susan is hosting this month's One-Layer Simplicity challenge and you just have to go and read where her inspiration came from. She really made me laugh!

Many of you will remember "My Cousin Vinny", a hilarious movie that I am now dying to watch again. Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei are absolutely excellent in this film! I do not specifically recall the line that Susan refers to, but you can bet that I will notice it the next time I watch!

Anyway, the challenge is to use blending in some way on your card. I masked a narrow strip and blended distress inks before adding a very simple sentiment in black. I've taken a quick look at the gallery and there's a lot of really neat ideas for blending - make sure you check them out!

I hope you'll get a chance to join us - this challenge runs until February 24.

  4. Gorgeous! Perfect clean and crisp inking as always and I love the rainbow! And I confess I've never seen "My Cousin Vinny". I feel like that's some sort of crime...

  6. The truth is I suck at blending... not sure what my problem is - cardstock, ink, blending tool? - love your card, loved that movie, loved Susan's blog post... thanks for sharing, Ardyth...
