 Dabbled with some ink blending in rainbow colours for a change from my recent Christmas card makes.  I die cut the shape first  before blending the inks and once the ink was dry I stamped using a large background stamp - dictionary text.  The square of white card was smooshed lightly into some ink on a glass mat and blotted to give a pale effect.  The flower was die cut from a scrap of white card and I kept the 'waste' so that I could use it as a stencil to give an impression of the same flower on the background.  Added a sentiment stamped on purple and embossed with white powder. A scattering of gems completes this card.
