Hi there, I hope you had a nice weekend!

Today I’ve got a clean and simple card to share using a technique that, until recently, did not feel easy to me at all.  I really love ink-blending, but I’ve never felt successful getting that perfect color fade to white until I tried these blending brushes from Pink & Main.

Hi there, I hope you had a good holiday and kept safe and healthy!

Today I’m sharing another heat embossed background stamp over an ink-blended panel.  Lately I’ve been creating a background or two when I feel like getting inky but don’t have the energy, or time, to create a finished card.  It’s so satisfying 🙂
