You didn't think ink pads were just for stamping, did you? Silly, of course not! There are many things you can do with your ink pads to get the most for your initial investment and I'm going to show you five different ways to use your inks in the next five days. Starting today!
I'd like to share an ink blending technique that I was reminded of out of necessity. We all know what that means. "Necessity is the mother of invention! I, in no way invented this technique. It does come in handy for the times you run out of coordinating colored card stock. And that's exactly what happened when I wanted to coordinate the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die with the color of card I was making. I may not have had the colored card stock I wanted but I did have the ink color and I had whisper white card stock. Marrying the ink and white paper made for a beautiful union in this case.
Check it out! Just by taking a mini ink blending tool and blending lemon lime twist and bermuda bay inks onto whisper white card stock, I got this really cool green ombre look!
Here is the finished card:
I kept it all really simple by using a background stamp from Stamping' Up! Timeless Textures stamp set and layering the die cut on top. I adhered a few rhinestone basic jewels for some sparkle and called it a day.
I hope you'll try this technique. Happy Sunday Stamping my friends! Stay tuned for tomorrow, where I'll be showing you another way to use your inks!
