{Neat & Tangled Video} Perfect Blend

I'm on the Neat & Tangled blog today with this card and video featuring the Perfect Blend stamp and coordinating die set. I used several techniques to create this card, including creating an ombre background using the latte art images, as well as watercoloured focal points and heat embossed hearts.

The MISTI stamping tool allowed me to double-stamp the background in three shades of ombre ink. I mirrored those same colours in the coffee cups, using distress inks and simple watercoloring. I used a white gel pen to "erase" any colour that bled outside the lines on the coffee cups.

The black hearts were heat embossed using Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink and clear embossing powder. The patterned paper is from Crate Paper's Notes & Things paper pad.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
