Make It Monday #8: Ink Blending Techniques

Well I certainly know that I need a bit more work on the blending part.  And maybe having the right tools would help.  But this card turned out better than I thought it would have.  I only had foam eyeshadow applicators to do the blending.  Maybe I'll try again with cotton balls?  I'm open to suggestions!

I used some stamping mask paper that I cut with the Mat Stack 1 die.  Then I used the stamp from the Mat Stack 1 collection and the sentiment from Think Big #2.  Directly around the image is Enchanted Evening ink, Ocean Tides ink, and finally Spring Rain.  The pigment ink was definitely easier to work with versus the dye ink.

I love the way you have the darker shade framing the panel. Simple and arty looking.

It looks great sort of like an impressionist painting!
