Ink Blending Ideas

Welcome back everyone.

I am super excited today as I am in full swing of prepping for an ink blending workshop tomorrow.

I have made a few sample cards for my class to show the group how to make blended backgrounds using all our lovely inks from Stampin' Up!

I thought I would share one of cards I plan to make.  I want my class to feel confident using the inks so I figured a messy background was a great one to start with.

To make the card I started with a square of white card stock and began to ink blend from the outside edge.  I thought these colours gave my card a bit of an aurora borealis feel.

I inked up my blending tool first then stamp a little bit off  it first.  I prefer to do this as you can always add more ink later.

The inks I used are Dapper Denim which is in the clearance rack, Highland Heather and Pear Pizzazz.

I then used the Snowflake Sentiments and Lovely As A Tree stamp sets to create the images.

I heat embossed the trees and some of the snowflakes in white.  I then stamped some in dapper denim and added a sentiment.

This card I did in the same way but I stamped in black ink the row of winter trees through the middle of the card.

I then added a few sequins from my own stash as I always need to add a bit of bling especially when its for Christmas.
