Your Next Stamp Guest Designer | Favorite Technique

Hello! I am sharing another guest post for Your Next Stamp! Yay. In this post, I talk about one of my favorite techniques – which is ink blending. Distress inks were the first things that drew me to cardmaking. For this card below, I created a night sky background using a few Distress Inks: Black Soot, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire, and Broken China.  I used painter’s tape so that I could mask off some white space instead of creating a background on the whole card front.  After blending, I added some water splatters and white pigment ink spray. I used my heat tool to dry it before I stamped the house silhouettes and heat embossed the sentiment with VersaMark and white embossing powder. 🙂
