Easy Ink Blending/ Altenew Academy


HI friends,

In my opinion Ink blending is one of the most easiest and beautiful ways to add colors to you projects. While it is easy there are a few tips and technique that will help you to make your projects look stunning. I am taking the class Easy Ink Blending from Altenew Academy taught by Amy Lee. Amy does a phenomenal job teaching various techniques to do the ink blending and her projects are eye catching and beautiful.


For my card I was inspired by her ink resist lesson. I started off with a bristol smooth white card stock which is probably the best paper to use it you are trying ink blending. I chose two leaf images from the Dot Art Stamp Set. This stamp set is a very versatile stamp set for making background cards or even if you want to use the images for the main idea of the card. I stamped the leaf images ising versmark ink and heat embossed it using fine detail white embossing powder. Then I chose the Sweet Dreams oval set which is a beautiful aqua colored palette from Altenew Crisp dye inks for the ink blending. I started with the darkest shade and ended with lightest shade of the four inks. The white embossing that I had done earlier resisted the ink from coloring the leaf images keeping it crisp and white.

For the sentiment label I used the darker two shades of ink from the Sweet Dream set as I wanted it to stand apart from the card. Initially I thought of wading up some silver thread to add behind my sentiment, but I did not like how the silver looked. I then took the Fine Frame Circle Die from Altenew and die cut it using a white glitter cardstock. I love the thin circles the die cut, which I arranged as a wad of floss behind the sentiment. I loved the modern touch that this die cut gave tot he card. I also added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins which matched the circle die color to make it look cohesive. The blended panel was then mounted on a top folding white card stock using fun foam and the card was done.

I hope you will give this class by Amy Lee on Altenew Academy a go, I am sure you will enjoy it and learn a lot. Thanks for hanging out with me today and see you soon, until then happy crafting and keep shining.


XOXO
