Ink Blended Backgrounds

Hello friends, Kirstynn here, and I am so excited to share my most recent project with you all. I don't know about you, but I love when I can take beautiful inks and blend them together to make a new rainbow of colors.

On this project I blended Key Lime Pie Hybrid Ink, Little Boy Blue Hybrid Ink, and Mrs. Periwinkle Hybrid Ink onto an A2 size panel. I knew that I was going to be die cutting this, so I didn't worry too much about it being perfect. I just quickly got the ink onto the paper. 


As soon as I was happy with the way the colors transitions from one to the next, I went ahead and used the Pretty Things Coverplate Die III to create two different backgrounds. The first is from the outline and the second is using die cut pieces. I used the outline piece and saved the other one for another card.


After I had the pieces all glued down, it was time to work on the sentiment. I really wanted this to be a generic card that I could have on hand. I found the perfect sentiment in the Everyday Sayings Dies. This is one of my favorite sentiment sets. The sentiments themselves are so bold and stamp great. Plus I love that they have the outline die and a shadow die. I used some of the Mrs. Periwinkle ink to create a colored cardstock to cut out with the sentiment shadow die. This was the best way to make sure that the sentiment matched my card panel. 

I glued used some foam tape to give the sentiment a little lift. Then I just added some jewels and adhered this to an A2 card base.

This is such a great way to make some generic cards. This could easily become a birthday card or a sympathy card. You could also change the colors to get an entirely different look. I hope you all are inspired to use your background dies to make some cards for friends and family. 

All best,
