Well Hello There,
Sometimes we think we have to every coloured card stock under the rainbow, but today i want to show you a beautiful technique which blows that out of the park.
I have simply used Neenah Cardstock 110lb to create the die cuts and a blending brush and my inkpads. I love the soft look it adds to a design.

Die cut all the elements, flowers, bird, and circle out of your white cardstock.
Next stamp the wood grain background in embossing ink, and die cut with infinity circle die.
Leaving the flowers in the cardstock after die cutting blend on your ink colours using a blender brush or tool.
Remove die cuts when dry, and add flower heads on to the base image, then die cut the bird and wings.
Slightly shade the bird with Wisper ink. This ad's the look of dimension.
Once dry I added a soft brush of Aqua Sky ink with a blending tool.
Stamp out your sentiment in Obsidian Ink, and die cut out with coordinating die.
Then put your images together, on a 6 x 6 " card blank. Adding dimension tape to the bird and sentiment.
Finish off by adding a few drops of the Novo drops.
I do hope you enjoyed seeing this technique.
