Today I am going to share with you how to make a ink blended sky background on your cards; plus I am going to use my featured product of the week A Little Elephant Bundle.   Okay, so let me explain the new featured product.  Each week I am going to be sharing a featured product on my Facebook Page.  You can see all the posts about my featured products there.  Let’s have a little look at today’s card shall we.

Tips & Tricks:

Here are a few tips to help you along the way of creating your background.

  • When Ink blending start with a very light touch and work your way to a darker layer.
  • Have a tissue or paper towel around to help  hold the paper.
  • turn the card around to do the other side.
  • wipe off the extra ink from you embossed area with  a paper towel

This stamp set and punch was one of my must haves when I saw the new catalog. I just thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. You know that you think so too. As I mentioned in the video this set can be for so much more than just babies. With all the great sentiments it’s a very versatile set.

Besides who doesn’t need a little elephant, a balloon, a flower, or a little bird in their life sometimes just as a pick me up.

I hope that you have enjoyed today’s card and that you will give the ink blended sky a try.  Remember that I will be doing a Facebook Live tonight at 8:00 pm CST on my Facebook Page sharing a couple other samples using this bundle.
