Mix it Up

 
It's a sunny, bright day here today.  I felt like making an abstract card with a new stamp I got called 'Patio Stone'.  The challenge at Splitcoast this am is to make a card with lots of dots so I was off to make a card.
I began by making the rectangle shapes you can see in the background.  I made those by inking up my acrylic block with DYE ink and dripping Blending Solution onto the ink.  The Blending Solution pushes the ink so you get a resist looking background.  When that was dry, I stamped the circular Patio Stones with more Dye ink.  Added the sentiment and I was done.  I think this would make a good card for a guy's birthday.
 
Also adding my card to these challenges:
 
The Male Room- GEOMETRIC
 
The Crafter's Cafe- ANYTHING GOES
 
 
Hope you can enjoy some sunny skies in your part of the world today.  I so appreciate you coming by and taking a look and for all the most kind and generous comments you leave for me. 
 
Supplies:  stamps- WPlus 9, Designs by Ryn/ Dye ink/ Memento ink/ pearls/ Blending Solution
