Just Add Ink #541 Blended Eclipse Birthday


Happy Friday everyone and welcome!! It's been a hot week in Melbourne both with the weather and with the Tennis!! That's right, after all the waiting and a few complaints we can finally enjoy some live tennis on the tv with some real crowds for the players too! How good a reward for Victoria after all we went through last year is this!😀

This week at Just Add InkNikki has asked us to Just Add a Blended Background. There are lots of pretty examples to inspire you over on the blog and I hope you can pop on over and would love to see you join us!

For my card this week I chose to use the blended background front and centre with the Eclipse technique.
I started with a card front sized piece of water colour paper and went for pops of colour blended with some Summer inspired colours. Then I die cut a Stitched Circle from that and used the Playful Alphabet dies to cut the Happy. One of the great things about this set of dies is they have more than one of popular letters (such as P!).

Some layers of white letters underneath the coloured ones give the raised or "Eclipse" effect. Do remember to sit the centre of the coloured letters back in place too. A white embossed Birthday, some silver glimmer balloons, and a few scattered Enamel dots and this bright, cheery and clean card is ready.

Card stock: Whisper White, Silver Glimmer, Basic Black
Stamps: Well Said
Inks: Versamark
Accessories: Die Cutting Machine, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Playful Alphabet Dies, White EP, In Colour Enamel dots
Non - SU: Distress Inks (TH, Ranger), Stitched Circle Dies (MFT)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the inspiration the team and entrants have for you and I look forward to see what you create this week!

Til next time,
