One of my favourite techniques is simply plain inking a background, and admittedly with all the amazing products and must-haves on the market it is one of the things we do less and less. It was time to dust off the amazing little inks and make some magic with blending backgrounds.
I used my Memento Dew Drop ink pads and blended through some Celebr8 Stencils to create 3 magical cards.
It is that simple. I combined the 2 colours by first blending the one colour and then the second colour for a stunning effect. Remember to overlap your ink colours when blending for a seamless effect running into each other.
I use small circular movements to pick up my ink and to blend, to get a streak-free perfect effect.
To complete my cards, I added some simple stamped sentiments in black, a few pearls and diamante as decorations and paint splats for that fun messy effect.
These quick cards are gorgeous and as a bonus I used everything I had on hand, using ink colours that I don’t always use, and stencils that haven’t been used in a while. And a stamp set that I love but haven’t used nearly enough.
