Sending You Sunshine

Hi! I am up on the Papertrey Ink Blog today with the project I created for the new feature, What do I do with this? Challenge. For this challenge PTI designers will get to try out some  new tools and share the projects they created using them.  This month we are working with the Nuvo Blender Brushes.

You can play along! One winner will be chosen at random to receive a $25 gift certificate. To enter, participants are required to create a card using a stencil to blend the background using PTI/Ink to Paper supplies. Stop by the PTI Blog for all the details. 

Nuvo Dual Tipped Blender Brush work great with stencils and are perfect for building a background scene. I used a Sunray Stencil with Lemon Tart and Summer Sunrise ink to stencil the sun rays and at the bottom of the card I used blended Blueberry Sky and Enchanted Evening Ink to add the water. (See products links below)

I also blended Lemon Tart and Summer Sunrise on a circle of white cardstock to create the sun.  Blending brushes also allow you to add a little color in select places. At the bottom of the clouds I lightly brushed on Spring Rain Ink and at the bottom of the clouds and Soft Stone Ink at the bottom of the sea gulls. The little touch of ink make the die cut images stand out against the background. 

The sailboat is created with the Seas of Life Stamp Set and Dies. I used foam tape to attach the boat to add dimensions to the card. The sentiment if from the new Just Sentiments: Summer Mini Stamp Set. 

Stop by the PTI Blog for more inspiration and how you can enter the challenge.
