Day 4 Homework

Holiday Card Workshop 2022 – Day 4 Ink Blending

Today’s class was instructed by Kristina Werner and all about ink blending. Her sample slimline tree card was adorable but I opted to go with some pinks using Distress Oxide inks in Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet and Pumice Stone for my Gina K Designs Winter Flower stamp and die set. The flowers were inked in versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. My leaves were from the DO green blended panels I made earlier today. As I needed something for my background, I decided to pull out PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Plaid stencil and inked with the Milled Lavender and Pumice Stone. It’s more pumice stone than milled lavender but hopefully it set off my poinsettias better.

The second session was taught by Dana Joy and it was all about Inked Backgrounds and the tip was to start with colored cardstock then blend from the top and bottom two different shades of ink. For my background, I used Gina K’s Turquoise Sea cardstock and inked Tranquil Teal from the top and Navy from the bottom. I arranged snowflakes from SSS Snowflake Season January 2021 kit, stamped in versamark ink and heat embossed with Taylored Expressions Diamond embossing powder and added a little copic white reinker splatter to the front.

Another fun day of classes. Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care; be safe.

Let’s go Phillies!

  1. What lovely cards. Your poinsettias are gorgeous against that subtle gray plaid background. I’m a couple of days behind on watching so of course way behind on creating. Glad you’re able to keep up with the class.

    1. Thanks, Judy, the nice part is that you can do these at your own pace. I liked today’s classes better than yesterdays. LOL..

  2. You did really rock this day in school. The plaid with gray and lavender is perfect for the shades of your flowers. I am so impressed with your white splatter in the second one!

    1. Thanks, Bonnie, I tend to forget to add those little extras like splatter so I’m glad it worked out well.

  3. Great job today. Both cards look great! I like the plaid behind the poinsettias and the dark and lighter ink blends look superb.

  4. I love the first card as those Poinsettias look so pretty with the subtle plaid in the background. And your second card is lovely too, just different in technique.

  5. Love this! Your poinsettia die cuts are gorgeous; love the embossing over your ink blending. So pretty! And your subtle handmade plaid is perfect behind the soft colors on your focal panel.
