Some ink blending with distress inks...

Hi! I recently had an opportunity to try the Artistry distress inks introduced by our very own Shilpi Crafts. They are really great inks and very pocket friendly as well. I needed a quick card for a friend who is ill and decided to try the blending technique with these inks.

I cut a rectangular mask and used Old Parchment, Dry Weed, Elegant Emerald, Tenacious Teal and Ocean Reef by Artistry. I also used Blueprint Sketch and Faded Jeans by Ranger. The sentiment was heat embossed with Primary Ebony EP by WOW! and the moon with Silver EP by Ranger. The stamp is a local brand and stamped with black Versafine ink.

Here is a closeup of the blended portion.

Note how beautifully the Artistry and Ranger inks are blending.

Entering this card in the CAS(E) this Sketch #151

Also entering in the Peek-a-boo Designs Challenge #1: Mood Board

I was very inspired by the beautiful teal, blue and green of the Christmas ornaments on the mood board.
