Brutus Monroe Abstract Umbrellas I'm Here For You Card!

 Hello Friends!  I hope you are having a fabulous week!  I'm sharing a card made with the gorgeous Brutus Monroe Abstract Umbrellas Background Stamp today!

These umbrellas are absolutely gorgeous and would be fabulous colored in but I thought they were so intricate that a simple Distress Oxide Blended Background would be just as beautiful!  I started with a Bristol Smooth Cardstock panel that measured 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" and used Blending Brushes for a smooth transition.  From the top of the panel, I began blending with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide, and then moving to Mermaid Lagoon and finishing with Picked Raspberries.  Each ink color was blended into the previous color which created a green between the yellow and blue and a purple between the blue and pink... so pretty!  I love that you can use just three Distress Oxide Ink colors and end up with five! After I finished my ink blending, I spritzed the panel with water and blotted with a paper towel to add those fun lighter splotches!  I hit my card panel with a heat tool to make sure that the Oxide Inks were completely dry and then used my Stamp Positioner to Stamp the Abstract Umbrellas in Embossing Ink and then heat embossed in Raven Embossing Powder.   Once the embossing was completely dry, I used some Pearl Shimmer Paint from my stash and mixed it with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol in a spritzer and then spritzed the panel several times for a fun all-over shimmer!

It was really hard to capture all of the shimmer in a photo but trust me... it's beautiful!  I mounted the beautiful ink blended panel onto a 3-3/4" x 5" matt of Raven Cardstock and then added that to an A2 Whitewash Cardstock card base.  I heat embossed the "i'm here for you" sentiment on a 1/4" strip of Raven  Cardstock from the Bunches of Love stamp set in Alabaster Embossing Powder and added it with some foam tape to the card front.  Last but not least I added three PPP Sparking Clear Confetti Sequins to finish it off!  I love how it turned out and can't wait to send it off to someone that needs to know I'm here for them!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
