Easy Ink Blending Techniques

Hi All!

A couple more cards to share with you today, inspired by the Altenew Easy Ink Blending Techniques class.

I had sooooo much fun making these cards and knew exactly what I wanted to create after watching the lessons in the class.
For the card on the right, I inked a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white card stock with Altenew Crisp Dye Ink in Morning Frost and Evening Grey. I stamped and die cut the blooms and leaves using Altenew Vintage Flowers stamps and dies

I used Crisp Dye Inks in Buttercream and Mango Smoothie for the flowers and Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades for the leaves. The sympathy sentiment is a stamp in my stash. I popped up one of the die cut flowers with foam tape and added a few Studio Katia clear drops.

The card on the left also uses the Altenew Vintage Flowers stamp set. I created a floral background on white card stack with various stamps from the set, using layering stamps for the purple blooms. The floral panel is then cut on the diagonal and layered over a card stock ink blend of Crisp Dye Ink Buttercream and Mango Smoothie with foam tape.

I die cut the word "happy" 5 times with a die from my stash, the top layer from an inked piece of card stock. They were all glued together with a glue pen. Lastly, I filled in the white spaces with Studio Katia Sparkling Sequins.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
