LIM - MFT - hello friend

Greetings Everyone!

Playing cards in a couple of challenges ...

Less is More - Challenge #288 Colour - Blue and Brown

MFT - Camp Create 3 - Awesome Ombre 

The background was created by using two cuts from a background die and offsetting the pieces to make a stencil.  Two colors of Distress Ink (Salty Ocean and Vintage Photo) were ink blended over the stencil to create the pattern. The 'hello' part of the sentiment was created from a piece of scrap to blot the blending tool ... I liked it better than the one I worked so hard to make!! A few coats of clear glaze were applied to the 'hello' to provide some shine.

Hope you're having an enjoyable day!
