HELLO

Was playing around with some ink blending and a new stamp set this afternoon and when I checked into Bloglovin' this evening, there was Virginia's new challenge - which included ink blending.

The flowers were stamped and embossed in liquid platinum.  Then I used scattered straw, abandoned coral and carved pumpkin distress inks which I blended with my Clarity brushes.  Added the die cut "hello" and some Pico dots, mounted it on some polka dot paper and then black card base.

Am also entering this in Die Cut Divas' challenge for "anything goes".


Thanks for stopping by today and love to read your kind comments.

  3. I too want to say what beautiful and seamless ink blending on this gorgeous card! I'm intrigued that you used brushes as opposed to foam blenders - is this method easier?
