Thinking Of You
Hello hello crafty friends! Welcome back to another tutorial. Today I will be showing you how I made this multi color ink blended card. I’ve been on an ink blending kick lately and I have noticed that the more I do it, the better blending the inks gets. So, lets get started.
Using an A2 card panel, I started with Seedless Preserve Distress Oxide towards the right side. I blended the color downwards and outwards until the purple started to fade (get lighter) For me, this makes it easier to blend colors like these together. I added Mermaid Lagoon at the bottom right and on the other side of the purple color, I added Picked Raspberry. Making sure the pink is lighter towards the top left corner, I added the final color Fossilized Amber. What I did next was to got back into each areas and add a little more ink until the harsh lines were gone and the blending took shape.
Make sure your panel is dry before you go to the next step. Since we are embossing this card, it won’t work if your panel is damp from the ink you applied. Once the ink was dried, I chose SSS Geometric Pattern Background stamp and inked it up with embossing ink…once I treated my panel with my anti static tool. I inked up my stamp and used black embossing power and heat set it.
I cut out SSS Thinking Of You die cut using their silver glitter paper. But I wanted thickness, so I cut out 3 extras using plain white card stock. And glued them all together using Gina K’s glue. (best glue for this) I stamped a black strip using a sentiment from CZ Hex Yeah stamp set and heat set it in white. I finished off the card with Little Lucy’s Mermaid Mix jewels.
That’s it! A nicely blended card with great colors. Have fun with this. If you mess up, keep trying. You will get it. Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you next time.
