Papertrey's Make It Monday #248: Ink Blending Through Die Cut Masks. Lizzie suggested using simple geometric shapes, but I need teacher thank you cards, so I used PTI's Pencil Me In dies for my masks. I don't own the coordinating stamp set, but I bought the dies because I knew I could paper piece the pencil. But I might just blend ink every time because I really love the subtle differences in color and how the technique naturally kind of highlights one side. I used several inks on this card: berry sorbet, kraft, and harvest gold from PTI and fog, smoke and slate from Simon Says Stamp. The colors seemed like the perfect slightly softer pencil combo to me. I finished my card with a little ombre treatment on a layered Wet Paint die cut, some twine, and a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins. Sorry to bore you with the details of this card, but I know I'll want to revisit this one and my memory is terrible these days, so I figured I better write it down. :) Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you all are having a terrific weekend!
