A stencil and a hug!

I have been staring at this Radiating Rays stencil on my desk for a few days and finally found some time to pull it out.  If you haven't seen this amazing stencil, its from My Favorite Things and its a must have.

I tape the stencil down to a piece of Bristol cardstock (from Hobby Lobby) and blended away.  I used the following inks in rainbow order...

Worn Lipstick
Candied Apple
Spiced Marmalade
Scattered Straw
Twisted Citron
Peacock Feathers
Dusty Concord.

After removing the stencil, I went back in a and blended in the white lines so the entire panel was covered in color.  Next, I took a Stitched Heart Stax die to cover up the center.  Then I added in the "sending hugs" die in white cardstock.  I love the white on white.  I popped the whole card front up on fun foam on to the card base.  And done!  :)
