Ink blending is one of my go to techniques! And it has so many different variations. You can ink blend with different dye inks, pigment inks, chalk inks, etc. and you can use different tools to ink blend onto paper. The possibilities are endless! But there are times I want a super saturated ink blended background, but I want it done QUICKLY! The day I was making this card was one of those days and my brushes just weren’t quick enough, so I did what anyone else would do when they’re frustrated and running out of time, I picked up my ink pad and took it straight to the paper. I thought for sure this wouldn’t work and I would be pitching this panel, but I was wrong! Watch the video below for all the details on this quick and easy way to make an ink blended background by blending straight from your ink pads!
I am really enjoying making Easter cards this month with my Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps! You get so much detail with the red rubber stamps and they lend themselves so wonderfully to really elegant Easter cards! Plus all Spring and Easter stamps from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps are on sale for the rest of this month! You only have a few days left so stock up now, while you can!!
For my card today I only used two stamps! I stared by heat embossing the Crosses stamp in black embossing powder. There are so many different ways you can black heat emboss. Head to my blog post HERE to check them all out and decide which is best for you! With my image heat embossed, it was time to start with the background. I love using emboss resist to easily create quick panels! Be sure to watch the video above for all the details on creating this quick ink blended panel!
This card was super quick to finish! I added an Easter Wishes sentiment on the ink blended panel after it was dry and matted the entire panel with black card stock. After stenciling a quick A2 panel I put the card together with adhesive and foam adhesive for added dimension!
This card was so simple and quick to make, but I LOVE the graphic look of it! And if you still need some more inspiration for Easter cards, you can go check out my last two video tutorials for Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps! Check those out at the following links!
