CAS ink blending

Today I'm sharing this fun blending card. This week's Make It Monday challenge was all about creating your own mask using dies and vellum to do some ink blending.

I masked off a window frame using post-it tape and washi tape and created a mask using three of the dies from the 80s set from one of PTI's Stampafaire kits. I blended the inks using various super 'healthy' inks: soft cantaloupe, orange soda, lime green, lemon yellow, pastel peach (all Hero Arts) and mango smoothie (Altenew). The sentiment (Friendly flowers, PTI) was stamped using Archival black ink.
