Hello friends! Today I’m participating in an Instagram Hop celebrating the latest release from Pretty Pink Posh. I’m going to be doing ghost ink blending on Kraft cardstock. Kind of a mouth full, I know but it’s pretty cool.
I have a video tutorial for you that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
Now I don’t use Kraft cardstock a lot but I thought this would be a fun technique to try. This would also work on dark cardstocks.
I’m using the Layered Carrots stencil but you can use any stencil you have in your stash.
I start by ink blending the first and second layer of the stencil with White Pigment ink.
After that ink is dry, I’m going to clean my stencil and come back to the first layer. I will place my stencil back over the top of my carrots and shift it ever so slightly to one side. Then I’l ink blend on Sweet Mango ink using a blending brush.
The second layer of the stencil, I’ll use Fresh Asparagus and for the third layer of the stencil, which adds details to the carrots, I’ll use Tomato Soup Ink.
So now we have this fun ghosting look to our carrots. Kind of light a highlight on one side.
To finish the card, I added a white frame using the Scallop Frame die.
I added this cute bunny from the Easter Sentiments stamp set and a sentiment from the Easter Wishes Shadow die set cut from White and Papaya cardstock.
The smaller sentiment on the top is from the Birthday Sentiments stamp set that I stamped in Jet Black Ink and trimmed into thin strips.
This is a lot easier to do with one layer stencils but it’s fun to challenge myself and use my layering stencils in new ways.
Hope you enjoyed today’s card project. Be sure to visit my Instagram to check out the hop and all the inspiration.
