Ink Blending Sponges

Hello Everyone – I wanted to share my card that I created with Ink Blending Sponges.

I spent the whole afternoon in my studio creating cards to share with you this week.  It was so much fun to create for fun.  I love play with ink and seeing what I can come up with. 

Today we have tickets to see Steel Magnolia’s at a local theater group today.  We have 2 separate groups here and this is one we have not been to before.  We usually get season tickets for the other one but with the pandemic they have just started back with shows.  I am excited to see this one.

Yesterday I posted about Ink Blending and the different ways you can in blend on your cards.  Today’s card was inspired by that post.  The Quiet Meadow stamp set is a great set to use for this technique. 

Most of the cards I have seen using this set has been when they blended a background and cut out the dies in black.  For my card I decided to use our retired sponges and color the die cuts.  I had to do a lot of masking as I wanted the flowers a different color.

When I finish the images I glued then to a white panel. I wanted some more color so I went back to a technique I used many years ago. Using the colors of the images I used the sponge and added bits of color around the edge of the panel. I alternated the colors to give it a colorful look.

All it needed now was some bling so I used the Metallic Mesh ribbon and some rhinestones. I love the mottled look you get when you use sponges for ink blending. Here is my example of using Ink Blending Sponges.

Look at how Ink Blending Sponges colored these flower stems.  They give them a mottled look which adds interest don't you think?

Ink Blending is one of my favorite techniques to play with.  I used the sponges to create the background for these cut out circles.  I love the Fall leaves created for this card that used the sponges to add the color to a piece of card stock.
