I took a break from Christmas crafting to play around with the new, upcoming Blending Brushes by Stampin' Up! I just got them a few days ago, and I must say they are fabulous. So soft, and easy to work with. The brush heads are just the right size, and the handles are a bit flexible. The perfect combination for ink blending. These brushes will be available in the upcoming January - June 2021 Mini Catalog that goes live January 5, 2021. If you don't want to wait join my Jean's Jewels Team. Stampin' Up! Demonstrators get to order a lot of the new products early.

I started off with a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Whisper White. I taped it down to one of my Stamparatus Plates along with two scrap pieces of paper to mask off the top, and bottom. Starting with Daffodil Delight, I worked my way across the white, and finished with Granny Apple Green. I used one brush for the first three colors. In between each color I cleaned it off with my Stampin' Up! Chamois, then dried it with a scrap of paper. I spattered the blended section with Wink Of Stella before I removed it from the plate.

I used the largest die from the Stitched Rectangles set to cut out the brushed layer. I then stamped the sentiment using Memento Ink. I cut the three butterflies from the solid butterfly panel die in the Butterfly Beauties set. The larger butterfly is raised on Stampin' Dimensionals, and the two smaller ones are attached with Mini Glue Dots. I added the completed layer to a Thick Whisper White Card Base using Stampin' Dimensionals. It's a beautiful card! You must try ink blending when you get your hands on the new Blending Brushes.
