Ink Blending - 4 Colors, 2 Looks

Hi Lovely.  Today's cards are a few more for your ink blending inspiration box.  This really is my favorite technique and as I've said before, a great way to create several cards in a short amount of time.  I used four Distress Ink colors and created two different looks.


The jewel tone blend I got really seems to lend itself to Fall.  I used the Stencil Masking Technique that I love so much.  I started by creating a mask from a full stick Post-it note by die cutting one of the smaller frames in the We R Memory Keepers Frames 2 die set, then placed the mask onto a piece of white cardstock.  I laid the Echo Park Simply Plaid stencil over the top.

Side note - I've recently sprayed all of my stencils with Krylon Easy-Tack repositionable adhesive.  What a difference that makes when ink blending with my stencils.

Once the stencil was in place I blended Distress Inks in Chipped Saphire, Seedless Preserve, Victorian Velvet and Dried Marigold; blending from top to bottom in that order.  For the card on the left, I removed the stencil, left the mask in place and added a second blend of ink over the top to fill in the plaid.  I stamped the sentiment using the retired Papertrey Ink Thanks All Ways and Avery Elle Simply Said Hello stamp sets using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  Of course, I cut both panels using my favorite stitched rectangles from Simon Says Stamp and mounted them on to plum and navy card bases.
