Ink Blending With Masks

Today I will share with you a fun way to create colourful, geometric patterns for one layer cards, that I recently learnt from Laura Bassen.   A great thing about this technique is that you can do it using whatever you have on hand.  Check out that great colour!

Tips and Tricks to note

  • Any shape die will work well with this technique.  How cool would gradient stars look?
  • You can use a number of different materials for creating masks, but keep in mind the sturdier materials, such as window sheets, create masks with greater longevity.  Save time-create reusable masks.
  • The secret to smooth ink blending?  Start light!  You can always add ink, but you can't take it away.  Try tapping off the excess ink from your sponge douber or stampin' sponge on a piece of scrap cardstock or grid paper before starting your project
