Going My Way card by Melinda Spinks

Hello everyone, it’s Melinda with you today and I have a card to share using the Hampton Art licensed Jillibean Soup stamps from the Irish Farm House Soup collection.

I couldn’t resist this gorgeous bicycle stamp so decided to have it as the centre focal point of the ombre circle. I added extra pops of color with the brads to give the card some added fun and vibrancy.

To create the ombre background I cut a circle from old cardstock to use as a mask and blended three different distress inks with a blending tool.
