Ink blended background

To start with I used papermilldirect raspberry pink plain card, which I folded and scored to make my card base. I then trimmed down a piece of papermilldirect white hammered card which is for my card front. I then started to blend the inks starting from the outside of the card and working my way down. You can use a sponge to do this. You don't need to use a lot of pressure and its easier to build the colour if using a light hand. 


I then stamped my image onto papermilldirect white card hammered. This card has such a beautiful texture and makes water colouring simple. I used watercolour pencils and added some colour before blending the colour out with water. After you have finished water colouring you will need to cut around your images and set them aside.



To make the frame I measured my card front and cut this out sing papermilldirect white hammered card, I then die cut a smaller square. You will now have frame. 

I then stuck down my ink blended card onto my card base and added the frame using sticky foam pads to add dimension. I then added all my water coloured images and stamped the greeting. To finish off the card I added a few sequins.
