Finally posting day one of this theme week super late as it got dark last night by the time I finished making these so had to wait till morning to take pictures. Today through Saturday, I’ll be posting Father’s day and Graduation cards, super quick and easy designs, so you can recreate them in time for the weekend! But if you don’t need those type of cards, you can also change out the sentiments for a different event, as you’ll see I did with some of the cards in the coming posts! I have a hard time making masculine cards, so challenged myself with this theme week.
For these cards, you can use any type of ink that you can blend with. I used distress oxides but I have used Fresh Inks from Impress Cards and Crafts and Gina K die inks for blending too. For today’s card a used the “double blending” or “tone on tone” blending technique, basically I used one ink per card to create a dual tone colored background.
I used the following distress oxide colors : wilted voilet, candied apple, twisted citron and broken china.
