Blending a background ~ Lighting the Way


Create this beautiful card by blending a background to show off these 
gorgeous fireflies and lantern on a card front. 

Here we blended  a background, and added a little sparkle and pizzazz to it to make a gorgeous environment for these adorable fireflies. 

The background was blended using a blending brush and a combination of Starry Sky, Orchid Oasis, and Fresh Freesia Inks. 
I stamped some Starry Sky Ink on the corner of a stamp block and added a bit of water from a water painter. Dipped the water painter in the "mess" on the block then tapped the water painter against a pen overtop the blended layer.
I gave the layer just a mist of water from the Stampin' Spritzer. 

When the layer was dry ( that only takes a minute or 2 ), I used a White Jelly Roll pen to add a few dots of white to the background. Then used a Metallic Silver Jelly roll pen to repeat the process.

There is probably an easier way to create a more dramatic effect on the background ~ however those are the tools and supplies that I had on hand, and I like to create with what I have!!
