Colouring the Aurora

Silhouette stamps are perfect for crafters who love to create backgrounds. The solid figures, usually printed or stamped in black, are a beautiful contrast against a bright star-filled sky, a riot of colourful blossoms, or whatever background captures your imagination. Today I want to share a technique for creating an aurora using water-based inks and a blending brush. I'm going to start by working the colour from the bottom to the top, which means I'll need to turn my cardstock 180 degrees…

Well, not just backgrounds ofcourse. I chose some of my favorite colors and tried others to see how they work together. I made thin strips.

Distress inks recipes for blended backgrounds

Well, not just backgrounds ofcourse. I chose some of my favorite colors and tried others to see how they work together. I made thin strips of the cardstock I usually use , blended them with my mini blending tools and then stuck them back on a full sheet, so I can insert them in my binder. I scanned them instead of photograping them, as it's close to midnight, I thought that would give the best color representation. But I'm not so sure it worked that way. So if you like the sound of some of…

The Male Room Challenge #95 - The Great Outdoors

Hello everyone! I'm excited to be guest designing this fortnight over at The Male Room (TMR) challenge #95 The Great Outdoors. Summer is over and I am not big on fall cards, so Christmas it is! I couldn't think of anything more Great Outdoors than the Northern Lights. Normally, I would make it multicoloured, but because this is a masculine card challenge, I stuck with the all green type. Here's my card. Started by trimming a piece of mixed media paper down to 4.5"x3.25". Heat embossed the…

More Distress inks recipes

After I posterd this blog: http://cardsbymaaike.blogspot.nl/2016/08/distress-inks-recipes-for-blended.html I made more recipes and also two Halloween inspired spooky sky backgrounds. Those I swiped instead of inkblending them. Also the rainbow is swiped, because it would take too much roon om my tag and I wouldn't be able to fit the whole scale of colors. and even more can be found here: https://cardsbymaaike.blogspot.nl/2018/01/distress-inks-recipes-3.html

Super Saturday at Magenta: Distress Ink Blending

I'm over at the Magenta blog today, and you can see that post here. My go-to simple but beautiful card usually involves Distress Ink or Distress Oxide Ink blending. It's easy, fast, and always gorgeous. This sort of colorful background is always perfect paired with an amazing Magenta stamp, like the stunning English Garden set designed by Nathalie. The beautiful style of this set will work with any sort of card. I made a birthday card, but it would work for Thinking of You, Sympathy, Just a…
