Learn how to blend inks in cardmaking

Using Snow front and Perfectly plaid stamp sets from Stampin’Up! 2019

Hi and welcome to a little bonus video. I made this card this evening for pure fun, and fun I had. I’m hoping to help you to learn how to blend inks in your card making. If I can do it so can you – but be warned, it can get messy.

I wanted to do some more ink blending using the blue colour family and the colours I chose were Seaside Spray and Night of Navy with added pigment ink that is our Whisper White.

I really love how this turned out and absolutely love how the images stamp onto paper. I added the whisper white ink last to give a snow effect on my card.


My Youtube channel is via the link below – I’d love for you to pop over to subscribe and watch this premiere with us.

I have many other ink blending tutorials on my page why not have a browse through my video library.

I hope you like today’s project. I used whisper white as the card base, night of navy for the matt layer and whisper white for the front.

Blending
I used a make up brush that I purchased up town, but if you don’t have this you can achieve the same results using our finger sponge daubers which I will link below for information.

Stamping:
Always start in the middle or bottom using the lightest shade and work your way out.

When adding darker shades work IN the way, test out how it looks on a scrap piece first if you wish.

There’s no set way the blended ink should look – just have fun, if you think it looks not quite right, don’t worry, by the time you add your stamped images and sentiments it will be awesome.

Tip: As our whisper white ink is a pigment ink, allow extra time for it to dry before handling your card, or use your heat tool to dry it off quicker.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog today.
