Supplies List

Ink essentials paper

Distress Mini Ink

Mini Ink Blending Tool

Any stamps you prefer (I used MFT Stamps)

Patterned Paper

Versafine Ink

Cut Ink essentials paper to 4 x 5 inches. You are going to love this technique so much, so go ahead and cut 3-4 more panels!

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!

Let's take another look at the card I created. I hope I have inspired you today! I hope I have inspired you today! Take care!
