Hi everyone! Welcome to my new craft home! There is still some more details that I need to add so, this site isn’t 100% complete. There will be plenty of features and tutorials up on this site. You can think of it as me giving a facelift to my blog 🙂 Stay tune!
Let’s get to today’s card :
I finally dug out my ink blending tool and start to ink blend again and now I’m on a ink blending buzz 😀 So hope you’ll enjoy this and come back next week for another ink blending card.
I usually try to make a batch of thank you cards to give to friends or family member and today I would like to share with you a batch of cards I’ve made.
I die cut some squares and started to ink blend using various Distress Inks. For these four cards, I used Cracked Pistachio, Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick and Shaded Lilac. As you can see, I’ve only ink blended the bottom half of the panel. I like how it looks soft and I added some water splatters on the card. to get some extra texture.
Next, I used My Favourite Things Hybrid black ink to stamp the flower from the Crokisses Set
. I tried to paint it to match the colour of the ink blend but I wanted the flower to stand out so I decided to paint all of it brown.
To add the sentiment, instead of stamping, I used the Alphabet Stickers
and used the colours to match the ink blended colour. I used a grid paper and Create A Smile long acrylic block with grids
to help me position the stickers as straight as possible. Tip : Stick the last letter first, that way you don’t have to remove it again if you underestimate the length.
To add some shimmer to the flower, I used the Winsor & Newton Iridescent Medium. It gives the same effect as the Wink of Stella (Clear) but it contains more in a bottle and more cost efficient. If you have a Wink of Stella, try this to refill your Wink of Stella pen 😉
Here’s a close up to show you the shimmers …
