Drive Away Those Blues

Drive Away Those Blues

This is one of those simple cards that came together in literally 15 minutes. I demonstrated it live on Instagram and added some white and black pen details after to fill out some empty spaces. 


The trick to getting it done so quickly was using colored cardstock and doing tone on tone inking. It's a really easy way to get a subtle effect. I wanted to make the flowers have a soft, diffused look, so I repositioned the stencil a bit offset from the original placement and it immediately made the image a tad blurry -- just the look I was going for. I finished it up with some embellishments and glitter accents and it's good to go to one of my newsletter subscribers!
