Hello! Thank you for coming back to my blog – how cute are these fish?! This is the Hero Arts Color Layering Goldfish stamp set. On this card, I did some ink blending, some embellishing of a laminating sheet (inspired by Jennifer McGuire!) and some die cutting! I had so much fun with this card – it was for my dad’s birthday.
I tried out the technique that Jennifer McGuire used in one of her recent videos with embellishing laminating sheets to make pretty, decorated windows. I added some ink to the inside of the laminating sheets prior to sprinkling embossing powder and I love the look it gave! The ink kind of bunched up in certain areas and made it look more like bubble and waves.
I used the Taylored Expressions Blending Brushes to ink blend distress oxides onto the frame panel and also around the edges of the card base. I didn’t have heavyweight cardstock in the color that I wanted, so I blended some ink onto the white card base to match. The brushes make ink blending a breeze! They really help get a soft, blended look without harsh lines. And look how cute they are! They look great sitting on my craft desk. 🙂
