This card is TOTAL CASE of Lianne Carper’s card, which can be found HERE. She has a fun blog with many great ideas on it!!! For this card, all I did was change the ribbon on it. The background looks like toile with the new Elements of Style stamped on it. We made this card at my stamp clubs this month.

I learned a new technique on this card! Usually whenever I use blender pens, I use Stazon ink, so the ink WON’T run. WELL on this card, you WANT the color to run/blend! I stamped the images in Basic Black Classic ink. Then when you use the blender pens (I used the blender pens on just the top layer), the ink will run and the flowers will turn gray. I didn’t even have to shade, because wherever there are more lines in the stamped image, the gray will become darker. It was a fun card to make!
