Hello crafty friends! MFT & Picket Fence Stamps have joined up today to share their products together! I used the amazing Picket Fence Blender Brushes to create a light and simple ink-blended background to my card today. When I first started card making, I had a lot of trouble with ink blending. My blending was always too harsh or I would get blobs of ink where I didn’t want them. I have actually owned these Picket Fence Stamps Ink Blender Brushes for years and they’ve been a game changer for my ink blending!
These brushes allow you to control the amount of ink that you want to add to your cards and backgrounds. For my card today, I wanted to show you how simple it was to add just a small amount of ink to the center of the card to allow your focal image(s) to really pop.
I blended a mix of Wild Cherry and Amarena Cherry MFT Premium Dye Inks with the Life Changer Ink Blender Brushes and then added some spattering of diluted opaque white paint. I then stamped, colored, and die-cut my elf that came from the Birdie Brown Santa’s Elves Stamp Set. For some extra dimension, I adhered my elf image to my card with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape. I also placed my die-cut panel on-top of a patterned paper card base. Super easy and fun!
