Blending Ink For a Background

Blending Ink For a Background

Happy Friday Everyone – have you tried Blending Ink for a Background with Blending Brushes?

I had a beginner’s class yesterday and the ladies had a great time.  They each chose the kit they wanted to work on and it was great to see all the different designs from the kits.  I can’t wait to see which kits they choose next month!  Here is a photo of the ladies hard at work.  

Last week I did a post about ink blending and talked about the different ways to blend ink.  Earlier this week I shared how to blend using sponges and the daubers.  Today’s card uses the Blending Brushes.

I love the soft look you can get with the Blending Brushes.  There are some tips to get a smooth look.  You have to use a light hand as well as blend a lot in the areas where the 2 inks meet for smooth transition.  I switched back and forth between the 2 colors quite a bit to work on getting a good blend.  I find the best way is to just play with the blending until you are happy with it. 

I chose the colors that I did for a reason.  I wanted a green for the ground/grass.  Then I thought of a yellow to be the sun rising.  And finally a blue for the sky.  The blue I originally chose did not have enough contrast so I went with Night of Navy and just used a light hand to not get it too dark.  Here is my Blending Ink for a Background creation.

Don't you love using ink to create a background scene.  Check out the Blending Ink on this card that created a scene of ground/grass, sun rising, and the sky.  Perfect background for these sunflowers!

This card uses some die cuts to create a fun ink blended background.  If you struggle with ink blending, choose 1 color to use for your background like I did for this pretty pink card.
