Stencils are so popular right now and it’s not surprising. Between the price point of most stencils and all the techniques you can use them with they are truly a good investment. Today I am sharing just one technique that you can use with your stencils which is ink blending.
I find ink blending to be a lot of fun. You can switch up your colors, use a heavy hand, light hand and always get a different but beautiful result. Also, so many companies inks can be used for ink blending now, but I continue to reach for my Distress Inks most of the time.
Today, I am going to be sharing with a video tutorial combining ink blending and stencils to make this Thank You card.
Here’s The Video!
All the supplies are lined in the YouTube Description box, but I will also include a link list here for your convenience!
