Mother's Day Card - Fold with a Geometric Artsy Look - Hero Arts GeometricSunCoverPlate ReactiveInks

Was inspired after watching Daniel West of Hero Arts live last night to create this Mother's Day Card. Used Hero Arts Reactive Inks with blending brushes & HA Geometric Sun Cover Plate die. Instead of using the die first like Daniel I used the blending brushes with the reactive inks first. After spritzing the Reactive Inks and allowing dry time I used the HA Geometric Sun Cover Plate die. Used Mother's Day woodblock stamp instead of Father's Day stamp like Daniel used. Had an idea for a fold card and this is what I created.
