Blending Brushes for Card Making

Hello Everyone ~ How do you use your Blending Brushes for Card Making?

Blending Brushes are very popular right now.  They allow you to make beautiful soft blended backgrounds.  Today’s card uses them to create a subtle pattern on a softly blended background.

I love using the Blending Brushes in different ways on my cards.  On this card I used them to create a subtle pattern using the decorative masks.  Then I created my own mask and added some more of the same color used for the pattern but in a much softer color.  All I needed now was to add my stamped images and color them.

Don’t overlook adding a line to your frame to bring the focus back to the image.  This line can be a solid at the top and bottom like the one on my creation or it can also be dashes and squiggles.  Choose your lines by the feeling you would like to convey in your creation.
