Multi-Layer Ink Blending With Die Cut Masking

Thursday, August 27, 2015

 
Good Morning!
I have a fun technique to share today.  I had an idea yesterday for overlapped, inked images in different shades or tones.  I thought if I layered my masks and blended a new color of ink each time I might achieve the look, and it worked!
 
 
Starting with a piece of white cardstock I sponged on some Hayride ink.  I cut several masks out of Post-It tape using the new Autumn Leaves dies from WPlus9.  After allowing the ink to settle into the paper, I applied the masks and burnished them with a bone folder.  Once the masks were adhered well, I applied the second color, Sweet Nectar, with the ink blending tool.  Without removing the first layer of masks, I added a second layer.  I overlapped the first layer of masks in some areas.  After I burnished the masks well again, I sponged on the third color of ink, Pumpkin Spice.  I repeated the process and sponged on my final color of ink, Gala Red

 
When all of the layers were done that's when I removed all of the masks to reveal the multi-layered masked images, I was so happy with how it turned out!  I added a simple greeting from Grateful Greetings to finish it off.
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
