Double Blending

by | Aug 13, 2019 | Backgrounds, Blog, Happy Thoughts, Hero Arts, Ink Blending

Hello there and welcome! It’s been a rough week around here and craft therapy was definitely in order to offer a bit of relief. When I’m searching for a little me time, my craft room is a haven! I’ve been double blending with Hero Arts Reactive Inks and the Rose Bush Cover Plate. So fun!

Begin by ink blending a gradient of colors from Taffy Reactive ink to Fruit Punch and then into Berry Smoothie on an A2 Dove White cardstock panel.

While the blending dries a touch, create a mask by die cutting an Avery Removable Label with the Rose Bush Cover Plate. Also, die cut a Dove White Medieval Flag Infinity Die. I used the second to largest in the set. Stamp sentiment, following bottom angle, in Black Dye ink, from the Tiger Wisdom stamp set.

Place Rose Bush mask over previously blended panel. Blend over mask with Sea Salt Reactive Ink. Because the inks are Reactive with moisture, it will pick up a bit of the blended colors below, but not to worry, it just creates an even smoother transition from color to color. I did, however, lightly rub my blending brush on a paper towel before going to the Sea Salt ink pad to pick up more ink. Once complete, remove mask to reveal the double blended goodness.

Trim blended panel to a scant A2. Pop, with dimensional adhesive or fun foam, sentiment flag over blended panel offsetting over the top edge. Flip card over to back and trim flag flush to top of panel. Adhere blended panel to folded card base, again with dimensional adhesive. Add a few Glossy Black sequins for embellishment.

I created another project with similar products for the Hero Arts blog. Find it HERE.

Thank you for spending a few minutes with me today. I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! Happy crafting!
