Paper and Ink Imaginings

Blended Ink Background Encouragement Card

I was rummaging through my stash of scraps, and found this background that I made…maybe a dozen year ago? There is a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers called Polished Stone by Beate Johns. I am pretty sure I modified the technique by using BD Alcohol Swabs and an original rectangular Tim Holtz Blending Tool. (These were suggestions by other card makers in the Splitcoaststampers forums.). And with this one, I did not add the metallic ink or use the sealer mentioned in the tutorial.

ANYWAY, the colors caught my eye while I was rummaging, and this card happened. And, no, I didn’t mis-stamp my sentiment, Reverse Confetti seems to like fonts with funky “s” execution.

Thanks for stopping by!
