Creative Love Affair: OCC Background Check Class - Ink Blending a Horizon - Mask a cut circle! #Mask #Background

OCC Background Check Class - Ink Blending!

I just started the amazing Online Card Class 'Background Check' and love it already! This is Day 1 and Laura Bassen shared her ink blending techniques. Here are my versions: I used specialty stamping paper for the first one, and I like the vibrant colours but I think the regular white cardstock blends better. I used Distress Inks for all these even though Laura used different types. I have more colours in the Distress Inks and am more familiar with blending them. These samples are all in…

One Lucky Day: Love with all your heart

Love with all your heart

Hi Everyone! The sun is shining today which led me to want to work with happy colors! Follow along and I'll show you what I made... I'm starting with my favorite background technique - Wrinkle Free Distress. I'm using Ripe Persimmon, Evergreen Bough, and Fossilized Amber + water. Squeeze out enough to get a good bit of stain...at least a 4" circle. Keep them close together without mingling the colors. I'm using Ranger Manila Cardstock as my surface. Lay the cardstock into the ink and push it…

Distress Ink Butterfly

A nice little package was delivered to my door a few days ago. They say good things come in small packages right?

I thought creating a monoprint of each set would show you how the colors in each set look together. So good, right? But then again, look at set #8. Set #9 is a little muted...but still great for something masculine or…

Happy, happy Saturday! I always love the way Distress Ink colors blend together. Sometimes I love the blended ink so much that I think maybe I should just stop right there!
