Select 2-3 different inks to blend. The texture of the Ink Essentials paper is super forgiving and perfect for those new to blending inks. The smooth surface gives you a few extra seconds to evenly distribute your ink! You just HAVE to try it! I like using the smaller ink blending tool (I have the larger one as well) because I felt like I had more control blending inks onto a smaller surface. The actual mini ink blending tool package comes with two blenders and four pads total. I would suggest picking up a pack of extra ink pads so you have an ink pad for each color.

Blend more ink colors onto your card panel and have fun! Add a few drops of water to give you a few more seconds to blend.

Allow your blended design to dry and then stamp a sentiment.

Adhere your design onto coordinating patterned paper and card base sized to 4.25 x 5.5 inches. You will see below that I didn't allow my design enough time to dry! I was super excited about creating the finished product. So, be patient, friend, and give your final design time to dry! Create more designs while you are waiting!
