Hi there, I hope your week is going well!
Today I played with Distress Oxide inks and some pretty new items from Pinkfresh Studio. I had a long day at work and ink blending is definitely a go-to technique when my hands want to get inky but my brain can’t quite think straight. It’s just so satisfying to play with these creamy inks!
I started with an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock and an A2-sized piece of masking paper. I selected a die from the Hero Arts Nesting Circles die set that was the same size as the Pinkfresh Studio Circle Frame With Botanicals die and positioned it over the piece of masking paper where I wanted the final die cut to be. I ran it through my Gemini Junior and then adhered the rectangular piece of the masking tape (with the circle cut out of the middle) to my Neenah panel.
Using foam blending tools, I blended Scattered Straw, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, and Festive Berries into the unmasked circle area. Spun Sugar alone was a bit too light so I brought in Worn Lipstick to ease the transition from Festive Berries.
I let the inked circle dry for a bit and then I used the circular piece of die cut masking paper to mask it off. I removed the rectangular piece of masking paper and then blended the same colors around the edges of the card, in reverse order.
I removed the circular mask and let the panel dry for a bit. Then I stamped the “with love” sentiment from the Pinkfresh Studio Scripted Bold Sentiments 1 stamp set in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
Then I used the Circle Frame With Botanicals die to cut three frames out of white 110# Recollections cardstock. I stacked and adhered the die cuts together and then adhered them onto the card front. To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
Thank you so much for visiting!
