Horse & Sleigh Blending Brush Technique Card

For the month of July, we're helping you get a head start on this year's Christmas cards with our Christmas in July Card a Day Challenge!

Horse & Sleigh Blending Brush Technique Card

Every day of the month, we have a new challenge for you. Be sure to follow along on our Facebook or Instagram to participate in the challenge! Tag us in your pictures or post in our Exclusive Stamping Before Anything Else Facebook group so we can see your take on the challenge.

Today is the 15th day of the month! For today's challenge, you'll want to create a card using blending brushes. Two tips when using blending brushes is to 1) make sure you use small circular motions to create a seamless color and 2) start blending circles on a scrap piece of paper under the cardstock then slowly move onto your cardstock-this will help with any harsh ink marks.

For this card, we used Highland Heather for the card base. Used the blending brushes in Boho Blue and Highland Heather; starting at the bottom then blending in the next color and being sure to leave a little white left over at the top. Then we stamped the sleigh and horse on a scrap piece of Highland Heather Cardstock with VersaMark. We added White Embossing Powder and heated it using a heat tool. We then fussy cut it out. The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White Cardstock using Boho Blue ink. We then added the sentiment to a piece of Boho Blue cardstock and added it to the front.
