w&w 3rd Birthday Bash | Ink Blending Challenge with Vanessa


Hi dear Winnie & Walter friends! Vanessa here with a challenge using my favorite technique! I can't help it, but applying ink to cardstock with an ink blending tool makes me happy! It's always a bit of a surprise how it turns out, but most of the time I like the result :) So my challenge for you is:


You can go wild here. Just blend inks on a background, use masks or stencils, die-cut words from ink blended panels, ink blending over heat-embossing, subtle or bright ink blending - whatever you can imagine, have fun and share it with me!

For my sample I used one of the Creative Screenings and blended inks on the background of my card:

It's really easy. I adhered the stencil over my card and applied the inks in circular motions with an ink blending toll. You can use Distress Inks, Dye Inks or Pigment Inks. For my card, I used various Dye Inks. 

The images were stamped onto the card and onto a separate piece of cardstock. I colored them with Copics, fussy-cut them and adhered them to the card with foam tape.

I can't wait to see your take on this challenge! Happy inking!
