Stamp Off Blended Beauty of Friendship

 Happy Stamp Off challenge day!  Today, Susan, Buffy
and me will be doing a project that uses the Stampin' Up!
Blending Brushes, found on page 129 of the catalog.

I have to say that I am in love with these Blending Brushes.
They make it so easy to create shading, without lines.  
In the above project, I used some torn paper, to
blend in the Pear Pizzazz "grass".  Then I used a piece of paper, 
that I ran through a cloud die, to blend in the sky.  I added the
"sun", by placing a post-it in position before I started blending
 the sky.

For the images, I used the Beauty of Friendship set on
page 11 (it also has coordinating dies).  After completing the 
background with the blending brushes, I stamped the tree,
then the leaves and finally some Night of Navy splatter 
in the branches.  I left space for the sentiment, which was also
inked with Night of Navy.

I hope that my card has inspired you to use your Blending Brushes.
Now it's time to click on over to Buffy and Susan's blogs
to see their wonderful projects!!
