Welcome everyone! Today I’m sharing how to ink blend onto dark cardstock using products from Lawn Fawn.
I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
The key to ink blending on dark cardstock is….. pigment ink. For my card, I used the Cloudy Stencil with Lawn Fawn Yeti Pigment ink.
I have a blending brush dedicated to just white ink so I don’t have to worry about color contamination. I’m going to pick up some of the Yeti ink with my blending brush, dab off a generous amount onto my craft sheet and then lightly blend the color onto my Blue Jay cardstock. Pigment inks are thick and can take a while to dry but by dabbing off you can still have that bright color without it being super wet.

After ink blending the clouds, I flicked on stars using the Starry Colors set.
I added clouds to the bottom of my card by diecutting the Stitched Clouds from Pearlescent Vellum and Pixie Dust cardstock.
The Super Star is diecut from Pearlescent Vellum and the new Shimmer cardstock using Oliver’s Stitched ABC’s. I layered them together with liquid glue, slightly offsetting it for a little shadow.
I have a fun trick to lining up my words just right. I used my grid surface on my craft mat and then picked up my words with a strip of purple tape.
My images are from the Super Star and Dandy Day stamp set. I stamped them onto white cardstock with Jet Black ink and colored with copic markers. The colors I used are: E57, E43, E42, E41, R21, E04, E11, E00, Y02, and Y17.
