Simon Says Stamp | Angled Ink Blending | Video

Hello and welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! Today I have a colorful ink blended card featuring what I call angled ink blending to create a bold and colorful background and some simple silhouette stamping.

CARD IDEA

I wanted to create a colorful background for a black stamped tree silhouette, so I pulled out several stencils from Simon Says Stamp and ink blended a colorful abstract background. Instead of evenly blending each section, I applied the ink using just the edge of my ink blending tool coming in very heavily where the edge of the stencil meets the paper and gradually fading into white.

CARD INSTRUCTIONS

I pre-planned my card background and divided it into 3 sections – a sky, with 3 subsections (ink blended with Deep Purple, Hollyhock, and Duckling), an ocean, with 2 subsections (ink blended with Audrey Blue and Maliblue), and land, with 2 subsections (ink blended with Green Leaf and Jellybean).

With the ink blending done, I stamped the tree from the All Seasons Tree stamp set and a sentiment in black ink and trimmed my panel to 3 x 6” and foam mounted onto a 3 ¼ x 6 ¼” white card base to fit inside the new mini slimline size envelope.

Finally, I embellished my card with sequins from the Strawberry Shortcake mix – it contains not only purple and pink sequins but also pale green, blue, and yellow, perfectly complementing the colors used to create a background for my card.
