Cards for Kindness
Masked Ink Blending Rainbow Card
Scrapbook(dot)com has recently launched a new global initiative called Cards for Kindness. The idea is to give handmade cards to people who need an extra boost, kindness, or just a simple smile.
Scrapbook(dot)com sent me some really cool products to create a card to inspire you to contribute to Cards for Kindness. I choose to create a card that utilized a couple of different ink blending techniques, with a stencil and a mask. I think the final card came out really cute. What do you think?

My Card Details
For my card I used a masking stenciled ink blended technique.
I use purple tap to mask off a section toward the top of the card and then laid the stencil “Giant Drops” over the Neenah white card front.
Then I ink blended a diagonal rainbow with the colors:
- Festive Berries
- Abandoned Coral
- Spiced Marmalade
- Squeezed Lemon
- Twisted Citron
- Salty Ocean
- Wilted Voilet
SBC created this super cute sentiment for this initiative. SBC website stampset has some really cute sentiments that I used for my card.
Once the card front was created, I used the Misti to stamp the sentiment “Hello” on the card front and then the “Sun Shine” on a piece of scrap paper.
Then I used my Silhouette Cameo and pix scan mat to cut the “Sun Shine” sentiment and its halo out.
Then as the final touch, I glued the “Seas the Day” confetti from Honey Bee Stamps for some embellishment.
