docrafts: Ink blended laser-cut stencil cards

Hey there, I hope you are having a great week! I have a couple of cards today which I created for docrafts. They have a lovely collection called Moroccan Haze and they come in a vellum and laser-cut pack. The laser-cut pack is lovely and so many beautiful designs. They come white and it got me thinking, how can I add colour to them. Once easy method came to mind – ink blending. With this, I used the laser-cut as a stencil and could ink blend through the laser cut and get two cards in one. It is so easy to create these Ink blended laser-cut stencil cards, so what are you waiting for!

To ink blend I used soft bristle stencil brushes. However, you could use an ink blending tool with foam pads or use make-up sponges/sponge daubers.  The best advice I can give you when ink blending, is to start off lightly and gradually build up the colour with lots of light layers. You can take away colour when you went to heavy hand, but you can always add more colour when light handed. 

Below are a selection of photos and at the end you will find a link to docrafts for full details on how to make these cards.
