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!

    I was inspired by the way you tore the background trellis. It made a much greater impression the way you used it!

    Love your pitch for the new blending tool, and then seeing it in action- I’m sold! What a clever idea to tear off part of the trellis- a much more realistic feel! Thanks for sharing your creative talents on the hop– Be Well.

    Hi Vicky!
    What a gorgeous card! I just loved it! And, I love, love, love the colors together! And, you used so many items from this awesome new release. The Birds of Paradise stamp is just stunning! I do not think I’ve ever seen one with them before! I was trying to figure out what I would do with the trellis piece. I think it adds a lot of dimension by tearing part if it off. This was the first time I’ve visited—it will not be the last!
