Pastel ink blending: Catherine Pooler Designs Summer Nights release

The beautiful butterflies in the new Night In-Flight stamp set from the new Catherine Pooler Designs Summer Nights release are so pretty and delicate that I thought that they would pair beautifully with soft ink blending. To complement it more so I went with pastel ink blending creating two cards with this technique. So let’s get started!

Pastel ink blending

Pastel ink blending: analogous colours

For this card, I used four ink colours and picked them using the Catherine Pooler Designs Ink Colour wheel. With this, I spun the inner wheel and selected 4 analogous colours on the wheel which were: Pucker Up, Grape Crush, Serenade and Oh Boy! 

Pastel ink blending

With a large ink blending brush, softly ink blend these colours in that order on one side of a white card panel and sweep down the bottom edge. Next stamp a selection of the butterflies from the Night In Flight stamp set in the matching colours to the ink blending underneath. 

Make sure you blend the inks on the stamp with a blending brush to stamp more than one ink on a butterfly. Trim this panel down and add to a cardbase. For the sentiment, layer 3 Hello die-cuts up and add to the front and embellish with sequins from Paris and Portland Sequin mix

Pastel ink blending: blue haze

Start off by stamping the butterfly stamp from the Night In Flight stamp set in Drive In ink onto a white card base, and also stamp the flying swirl stamp to create motion. Next, use a blending brush and blend Oh Boy ink over the butterfly to create a soft pastel haze. 

With a clear Tombow blender pen, pick up Drive In ink and colour in the butterfly. The colour will blend out allowing you to create shading. Stamp in embossing ink a sentiment from the Night In Flight stamp set and heat emboss in gold embossing powder

Trim the panel down and foam mount onto a white card base. Lastly, embellish with sequins from the Kyto Sequin Mix
