Balloon Animals + Ink Blending with Surface Inks

Balloon Animals + Ink Blending with Surface Inks

Did you know that you can ink blend with BRUTUS MONROE'S SURFACE INKS? They go on so smoothly and create fun and vibrant backgrounds! 

I made today's card using the new BALLOON ANIMALS STAMP SET and my Surface Inks to create a sunset sky for this birthday card.

I also created a quick process video in which I explain a little better the process of ink blending:


Easy, right? Just remember these few tips:
  • Start off the page and then blend on, using light, circular motions
  • Break in your foam blending pads by using them- A LOT!
  • Take your time and put some elbow grease into it. JUST KEEP BLENDING!

Once my background was blended and looking like a perfect sunset sky, I colored my images in with my STYLE FILE MARKERS and then adhered them and my sentiment to the card. I also took a bit of washi tape and added it to the side for a little more visual interest. 

Not only does this BALLOON ANIMALS set make fantastic birthday cards, but it also has some fun sentiments for cards to send just because. Here's a second card I created with this set. 

I again did a little ink blending but also left quite a bit of white space. Love how bright the colors look against the white cardstock! 

Thanks for visiting the blog today! 

Until next time, 
Marie Nicole
