Ink Blending Through Stencils

Hey There! Today I am here to show you how to use ink blending through some intricate stencils. I will be using the Gothic and Doily stencil from Tim Holtz. I love these stencils because they have fun and intricate designs to use on cards as stand alone backgrounds.

To start ink blending, use your round blending tool and some Distress Inks. These inks are specially formulated for techniques like this and they work great for blending. Then you can blend over your stencil design carefully with many different colors.

Because these stencils are so intricate it can sometimes be hard to blend with out getting the foam caught. I would recommend working with a light hand adding many layers of color, also going in the opposite direction and avoiding the intricate bit help too.

Finally, to finish off these cards I added them to tall side folding cards and put a sentiment in the center. I used the Scripty Thanks die and Halftone Thanks stamp set to complete my sentiments.
