Ink Blending

As you’ve seen in other posts, this is my art side coming out. Veterinary Dentistry is the arts and crafts of veterinary medicine.

This post is part of a series started many months ago in regards to card creations we are using in the office (and showcasing my creative outlet).

The fifth class, Easy Ink Blending Techniques, shows blending distress or dye ink. One can do in an ombre effect, and consider adding a bokeh design. Possibly consider emboss resist as a background, then blend the inks over it. Faux watercolor a background was also shown.

My background was blended over an entire 8.5×11 page with distress oxide inks to layer color drying between ‘smooshing’ layers. To seal and brighten the inks, microglaze was applied to the entire sheet. The sheet was cut into pieces to create 8 cards from one sheet.

Embossing and mirror card stock was added. Staz On ink is needed over the microglaze due to the added gloss when stamping.

Here are my 8 cards with blended backgrounds.

If you are the recipient of one of these cards from my office, I hope it brightens your day!
