Ink blended CAS card

Hi everyone, so good to see you. Today is just a quick post to create this Ink blended CAS card. I love the vibrancy of this card even though there are only a few colours used. I feel the colours would help cheer anyone up when they are ill. 

Ink blended CAS card details

This card comes together in no time. Start off by lightly ink blending some Distress oxide onto the centre of your card panel. I used Fossilised amber for this card and used a circular motion, widening my reach on each rotation. To add a little more interest to the background I created ink splatter by flicking some of the distress oxide off the edge of an acrylic block. 

The main stamp comes from the Many Mandalas stamp set from Concord & 9th, and I heat embossed this in Platinum onto vellum paper. This was fussy cut out before I applied ditress ink to the back of the velum. I used Candied Apple in the centre, and blended worn lipstick on the edge. This was mounted onto the centre of the card using clear foam squares. 

The sentiment was heat embossed onto black card stock in matching embossing powder and mounted directly onto the vellum stamped image. Lastly, the card was finished by foam mounting the whole panel onto the card base.

Did you like this project? Why not pin it and save for later? It will be there for when you need it!
