AAA Cards - Game #71 Blending

How do you like mixing and blending colours? Well at AAA Cards this fortnight we'd like to see how you do it.

I realy love how the colours subtly change when they overlap each other and also that even using the same colours and stencil you get a different result every time.

I chose a feather stencil from Stamplorations for my card and not only overlapped the colours on each feather but also overlapped the feathers to get even more variation.

The feathers are quite large and took up nearly all the card space, so to ensure I still kept that important empty white space we CAS lovers always expect I matted the square onto a long landscape base card.

Stamp: Stamplorations, Imagine
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, bluepring sketch, cracked pistachio
Stencil: Stamplorations, Feathers & Arrows
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched circle stax

Now it's your turn to get creating, but before you rush off to your craft space go check out what our fabulous Guest Designer, Michelle Balla, and the rest of the AAA Cards DT have come up with for this fabulous challenge theme.

Thanks for your visit. And keep crafting!
