Dream Ink Blending with Stampin' Up!

Hi crafters,

I'm in the ink blending zone at the moment and I have another card featuring my favourite technique.  I used inks, cardstock and dies in this card - no stamping!  I will stamp a greeting on the inside before giving the card.  I usually do this once I decide on a recipient if I haven't made it with a special someone in mind.  

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and added blobs of Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo ink.  When these colours overlap, a lovely purple is created.  I inked the edges of the panel in Night of Navy ink and then added a bit of Tuxedo Black Memento ink to really capture the halo effect of a galaxy.  I splattered some watered down Craft Ink Refill with a paintbrush.  The Hand-lettered Prose Dies were the perfect addition to the centre and with an alphabet you can chose any word that fits your recipient.  I cut four each of the letters - three in Whisper White and one in Silver Glimmer Paper.  I finished by adhering some stars from the flourish in the Stitched Stars Dies.  I attached the die cuts and panel with Liquid Multipurpose Glue.  

I would like to enter this card into the SUO Challenges - Die-cutting challenge (SUOC237).  

Happy crafting,
