I've got another "inky" card for you today in my tribute to one of our retiring 2018-20 In-Colours...BLUEBERRY BUSHELLThis colour has been a firm favourite of mine these past two years as it's such a rich colour perfect for those male cards, and of course it coordinates so well with all of our other colour options!  The 2018-2020 in-colours will no longer be available after the end of May so please be sure to order these items ASAP as they will not be re-stocked once they are sold out.  

For my card, I have used the Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper to create the wash of ink background.  I have used an Aqua Painter and a Stampin' Spritzer to add the ink, and dried with a Heat Tool.  I find the trick to create these rich inky looking backgrounds, is to add layers of colour and dry each one in-between.  

To turn this background into a card, I have layered onto a cardbase cut from Blueberry Bushell A4 Cardstock and used die-cut pieces using the Natures Thoughts Dies cut from Vellum and Seaside Spray A4 Cardstock

To finish, I have added a sentiment and a piece of Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon and a few Night of Navy coloured Holiday Rhinestones.  

Thanks so much for reading today's blog post, I hope you come back soon.

Have a great day!
