Card Layout 17

Some more muted colours today and, despite the snow dump that we had last night, still some hope of greener times to come.

This one is also for those that were finding the “girly” florals a little too much.

Anyway, here’s the layout and the card that was inspired by it.

Fancy seeing me chop up some paper? Oh, go on.

That’s about it for this one.

  1. Love this card John…. I use exactly the same as you for my blending mat though I do have a piece of cardboard in the plastic bag just to make it more stable :-) x

  2. Stunning card John, great layout.
    I would also colour the edges of the sentiment strip, it fits better in than bright white.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful evening.

  3. Hi John. I see on the video you used a blending brush, I am new to these but have seen them recently on a couple of craft videos. Are they worth investing in and better than using the sponge ones which at times I find hard to get a good blend without lines? Lovely card as always thanks for inspiration.X


    • A blending brush will give a different feel to a blending sponge but ultimately the choice is personal preference. I personally use the sponge for all types of inks however I will generally only use the brushes for water/dye based inks as pigments inks are a little too sticky to work with when using a blending brush and I don’t find that I have as much control.
