Ink It! with AECP Easy Ink Blending Techniques
HELLO! CRAFTY CATS
I am back again with another set of cards for AECP- Easy Ink Blending Techniques by Amy Lee.
Oh! How I just love ink blending techniques. A smooth blend with a velvet touch can be so relaxing & simply beautiful. What is your favorite technique? I'd love to hear about it.
Being in such a colorful side of the word, I am naturally drawn to brights. The color decisions were a cake walk using a color-wheel.
For the red & gray card my inspiration was a Bengali bride. She always wears this combination on her wedding.
I use Neenah Classic Crest Solar White for my inked cards and make-up brushes for blending, To avoid finger marks, I use a clear stamping block.
The multilayer stamps have been inked with Altenew inks.
After stamping the multi-layer stamps, they were asked off and the background was inked with Distress Oxide Ink for a smooth & velvet finish. The backdrop inks are in a gradient combination.
Different sentiments have been die cut from the panel and propped up with multiple layers of the same sentiment in black cardstock. this has been finished off with Glossy Accent giving the sentiments a shine. Clear embellishment drops have been used there and there.
Befor adding it to the card base, the finished panel is mounted on a golden cardstock for the oomph!
PS : Amy Lee thanks for a great technique series. You have broken down the process making so easy-peasy.
Until next time. happy crafting!
