Technique Tuesday Blog Hop with Blending Brushes and Dandelions Embossing Folder

Hi, Crafty-Happy People!
Today is Technique Tuesday and I'm joining a Coloring Technique Blog Hop. I think you'll find this an exciting Blog Hop in that you will be able to learn many different coloring techniques from other demonstrator.

This is the card I made to demonstrate my coloring technique. This technique incorporates ink and Blending Brushes on Pearlescent paper. Let's start with the supplies.

I started by embossing a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Pearlescent Specialty paper with the Dandelions Embossing Folder. If you don't own the Pearlescent Specialty paper, you will want to get some. It is beautiful and loves embossing folders!
The 3 colors I used were Just Jade, Pacific Point, and Gorgeous Grape.

Starting at the bottom, I blended Just Jade ink about a third of the way up the Pearlescent paper.
I then continued on with the Gorgeous Grape ink. I blended heavier in the center of the dandelions.
The last color I used was Pacific Point to give the impression of the sky.
The cardstock I used was Gorgeous Grape for the base, 11" x 4 1/4", and Just Jade, 4" x 5 1/4", for the frame. I cut the center out with the next to largest Stitched Rectangles die. I also added a Mint Macaron ribbon across the bottom to finished it off.
Notice on this card I put the card together a little different. Instead of putting the Just Jade frame on top of the Pearlescent paper, I adhered it underneath. I believe I like it better this way, and look how much cardstock you save. Which one is your favorite?
I hope you learned a new coloring technique from my blog post, and will come back to visit me another day, but today, visit the blogs of the demonstrators listed below. Thanks for stopping by!
