Ink Blended Stripes
This card actually came out really pretty. I know that makes me sound like I wasn't expecting it to but since I'd never done a card like this I wasn't sure. But in the end I LOVE the results! So pretty!!! It was a little time consuming because each stripe had to be done one at a time but it's worth it! I would also be really pretty to maybe to larger stripes in an ombre pattern!
I made one tall and one long card. I can't decide which I like better. To get the stripes I used post it tape, ink and a sponge dauber. I blocked off a section on the card with the post it tape and used my sponge dauber to blend in the ink in that area. Then I removed the post it tape, taped it down either above or below and did it again alternating colors and widths of each stripe. The colors I used were Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron, Pear Pizazz, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder. I love the rainbow look!
Each card was finished with a gold embossed greeting and some Gold Glimmer stars. I loved doing this technique and I'll be revisiting versions of this technique in the future it was soooo much fun!!!!
