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.
