When I attended the Creating Keepsakes Convention this summer, I purchased a Ranger foam blending tool. I use it every chance I get. I LOVE this tool! You can purchase additional foam pads which attach to the tool with velcro. It makes the technique I used to create this card a breeze and the best messy fingers so I don't look like an inky fingered freak when I have to pick my daughter up from school.

For this card, I stamped the image and embossed with clear EP. I then used a series of inks and started belnding beginning with the lighter shades and working my way from the inside out using my awesome blending tool to achieve the color I wanted. This is really a very simple technique which yields a beautiful result.

I hope you have enjoyed all the cards I showed you this week using the Treasures stamp set. Join me tomorrow and I promise to take you in a colorful new direction.

  2. This is beautiful! I have that tool too and I LOVE it!!! Perfect for blending ink.
    I have enjoyed your cards this week Cibele.
    My inspiration is MIA at the moment...I don't even want to go to my spot...It's like I am having delayed reaction stress just when I should be relieved...go figure.


Sharing your thoughts makes my day and I appreciate that you take the time to leave me a comment.
