Paper and Ink Imaginings

Blended Floral You’re On My Mind Card


I know I posted this sentiment not too long ago, but I needed a thinking of you card.

Late in July I purchased a small set of blending brushes from The Stamp Market (The set of 3 was on sale for $11.99 – I had never tried brushes before.), this was my first time inking one of them. The brush did seem to apply ink easier than the Tim Holtz mini blending tool (I don’t have a dedicated sponge for each color, so that may be a factor). Not sure if my wrist liked the motion of the brush, though.

Supplies:  Stamp – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, VersaMark, die – Lawn Fawn, stencil – Dylusions, sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Ranger Super Fine Detail white, organdy ribbon – Offray.

  1. Gorgeous colours Kathy, I’ve got some similar brushes Kathy and I love them for blending, I think they are much smoother than the foam. x

    • Jenny, I don’t disagree with them being smoother than the foam…I just need to get used to them, I guess! And I need to try them on Bristol card stock – I bet that would really be smooth.
