I had time on the weekend to play a bit more with the new Pink & Main Rose Garden layering stencils and their Ergonomic Blending Brushes and I made a few more cards.
Then I laid the rose layer over top, and I masked off the flowers I didn't want ink through. I used the mini brush to put different colours of ink through each rose.
I finished with the big smile sentiment stamped with Versafine Onyx, and created a sentiment strip for the rest of the sentiment.
Same idea of fading the ink, but this time, I let it fade on a straight line, and I used only fuschia ink for the roses.
Finally, I used a rainbow of inks, moving the colours so that the leaves and flowers would be different.
