Color Blending Brushes to Create a Frame

Hello Everyone ~ this is the last idea for Color Blending Brushes to Create a Frame.

I have had so much fun playing with the blending brushes this week.  They make laying down a smooth layer of color so easy.

These brushes are easy to use also.  You just ink up your brush and using a light hand apply the color.  If you want it light only add a little color.  If you want a darker color just keep adding the ink until you are happy with the color.

This card uses rectangle masks created using the Stitched Rectangle dies and window sheets.  The masks then allow you lay down color to create a simple frame.

The blending brushes are easy to clean.  I just rinsed them out and set aside and allowed to dry.  This ensures your colors do not reactivate and mix with the next color you use.

The video is very long as I wanted to make sure you knew how I completed each color of the frame.  I hope you enjoy the Color Blending Brushes to Create a Frame video.
