One Layer Masked Blendabilities

It seems like I have been doing a lot of Sympathy Cards lately, but I have needed more than usual. This week my Dad's classmate, brother in law, friend passed away. He like my dad was 90 and had just returned home to Delaware from visiting my dad here in Boston. He was strong and vibrant and it was a shock to all of us. Here is one of the cards I made for a cousin.

I masked off  Very Vanilla Card along the edges using masking tape to create a clean bright VV border. Then I masked a circle and used BLENDABILITIES  to create a somber sunlit sky using the same technique found in my OMBRE CLASS. I maksed the blended circle and created a dark black outline using Staz On ink and a sponge. I finished it with a sentiment stamp from the Hostess Stamp Set  Bloom in Hope.

I created a Flower using the Pansy Punch and colored the card stock for that first with Blendabilities Ombre Technique.

Today's challenge uses the ONE LAYER CARD theme from Our Daily Bread Designs

Hi Donna,
Love your Mojo card, which is what brought me to your blog. You talk about blendabilities in your post and the results are fabulous. But the link didn't help because when I typed blendabilities into the Stampin Up search I got nothing. I don't often buy SU so I'm not familiar with your catalog or where to look for more info. Can you help me out?
