Love from our Home to Yours

Hi friends. I've got a love themed card to share with you today.

I started by taking my Bristol card stock and doing some ink blending with various shades of purple distress inks. This is my most favorite paper to use for ink blending as I find that it is so easy to blend the inks with this paper. It will show fingerprints so I always use a piece of scrap paper along the edges so that I'm not having to constantly go back and re-blend. 

I then die cut the panel using the Frames die from SSS and then used the same die cut to get the black scallop that the ink blended portion nestles into.  

My stamping comes from a Paper Smooches and Reverse Confetti sets. I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh as a finishing touch.

Gosh, this is so pretty, Alanna! I like how you blended the purple to be darker on top and lighter on the bottom. Your spritzing drops look fantastic. Great use of the black to make the background really stand out. Fabulous card! :)

Now I know your secret to amazing blending! Seriously though, it's gorgeous, to me you are the Queen of blending distress inks. Might have to find some of this paper and give it a go! Xx
