For the background I combined Tumbled Grass and Cracked Pistachio oxide inks and did the blending with the new blending brush. Works like a dream for large areas.

The gorgeou flowers are from the new Bird of Paradise Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ) as well as the sentiment.

I stamped the sentiment in one of the labels from the Apothecary Labels Stamp Set( ALTN ).

Also for some added interest on the background I did use the Garden Trellis Cover Die( ALTN | SSS ) but teared off a part of it!

    Such a beautiful card Vicky!! I love those two colours of D Ox inks blended together. I hadn’t thought of ripping a background cover die when I use one, but why not? It looks fabulous on your card & the Bird of Paradise stamp set really is striking when layered. Enjoyed your video.

    Wow, do I love this stamp set. It’s so very cool, and I love the colors you chose. I also really like your point about how cover dies need not always cover! I tend to be very linear, so seeing how you incorporate your mixed media techniques helps me break outside my comfort zone.

    Love the blended background and the way you have just a section with the die cut!

  19. I love how you use the Garden Trellis — partially cut away. Really distinguishes the use of that die from the quilt-top one Altenew also has.

    That blending tool is a winner. And sold out. No wonder!!! I like that it is washable and has a lid. Likine that trellis die cut also. You used two of my favorites from this release.
