I thought it would be fun to do some color blocks on my card, so I started by creating stencils. I used Spellbinders® Curved Matting Basics B to cut openings in the centers of three pieces of scratch paper. I use the three smallest die template.

 Then I used repositionable tape to adhere the largest stencil to my Pure Luxury White (5 X 5 inch) card base. With the stencil in place, I then sponged Gina K Sweet Mango ink.

I removed the first stencil, then positioned the second largest stencil. I sponged Gina K Bubblegum Pink ink in that opening.

Next, I switched to the smallest stencil and sponged Gina K Sweet Corn ink.

I stamped the flower image, from the Journey of the Heart using, Gina K Black ink.

Then I stamped the branch with Gina K Grass Green ink, but I first stamped off on scratch paper to make the image lighter.

Next I stamped the sentiment using Gina K Black ink.

It's a little hard to see in the photo, but I also added some decorative scoring in the corners using my Scor-Buddy.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!.

A beautiful layout/card! I appreciate the tutorial which simplifies the technique so I believe I could do that - the trick would be using colors that blend well. TFS
