I used the Mask It Rectangle Stencil and positioned it right in the center of my A2 card background and used an Ergonomic Blender Brush to blend a gradient of ink in the center of my card. This makes a fun center point on my card that you could leave as is, but I decided to step it up a notch! I placed my masked and ink blended card front into the Let's Polka Embossing Folder and ran it through my die cutting machine. Now I have subtle texture added to my background!
I stamped my ADORABLE image from the Gnome Matter What Stamp Set and colored it with Copic Markers. I added lots of white gel pen dots and highlights for texture to the image. This is something new that I'm trying with my coloring and I am loving it! I stamped a sentiment from the Gnome Matter What Stamp Set and die cut both the image and the sentiment with the coordinating Gnome Matter What Die Set.
You can recreate this card and change up the ink blending or the embossing folder for a bunch of different looks! I'll see you again soon!
