Hey there, welcome back and I hope you have had a great week! This week the team were hopping along showcasing their favourite Brutus Monroe products. There are so many fantastic products it was hard to choose, but I settled on the surface inks. For my post on Wednesday, I showed you two card where I created bold ink blended cards. However, for today’s cards, I wanted to show you they can also be used to create soft subtle ink blended backgrounds as well!

soft subtle ink blended backgrounds Card Process Overview
Using a blended tool applicator and a slick surface like a glass mat gently blended on the ink from the amt onto the card edge. Lighten the pressure as you move into the card for a soft gradual fade and to prevent harsh lines. Keep reapplying layers to build up the colour until you are happy. For these two cards I used Apricto Surface Ink and Sidewalk Surface Ink.
To assemble the cards, I mounted the card panel onto a card based with fun foam. I heat embossed the camper van from the Road Trip stamp set in Raven embossing powder. I also heat embossed the sentiment onto a stitched oblong vellum piece. These were adhered to the card, with the camper van hiding the adhesive for the vellum. The card was finished with Liquid Mercury Cyrstal Nuvo Drops.
For the second card, the fox from the Dream Catching Stamp Set was heat embossed in Penny Embossing powder onto a stitched vellum circle. The fox was coloured in on the back with alcohol markers. A sentiment was foam mounted onto the card and the vellum circle was glue down with Craft Glue behind the embossed lines. Lastly, this card was finished with Strawberry Coulis Jewel Nuvo drops.
