Had some fun ink blending with a stencil today and such a pretty one at that. This card was inspired by the Easy Ink Blending Techniques class at Altenew Academy. It was a great class, check it out if you want to learn some new tips and tricks :) Several techniques are discussed, from creating your own matching card stock to faux watercoloring.
Here is a quick video of the process I describe below.
I was able to create this card using the Leaf Burst Stencil from Altenew. I blended Wild Honey Distress Ink in the center and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on the outer leaves. To take it up a notch, I turned the stencil (so that the tall leaves overlapped the short leaves) and blended the Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink onto the page. I was careful to use sticky notes on the open areas around the square so I had this pretty pattern only on the page.
I created a matching pink border by inking the edge of a 6" square piece of white card stock with the Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment from Altenew's Thoughts & Reminders stamp set, in Versafine Onyx Black Ink, and used Altenew clear embossing powder to create some shine and make the saying pop off the page.
If you make a project inspired by this post please tag it with #perkypennypapers on

I hope you get your happy on making cards soon :)
