PTI MIM #248: Ink Blending Through Die Cut Masks

Lizzie hosted this week's Make It Monday for Paperetrey Ink here. She shared tips on ink blending using our own die-cut masks. She used different size hearts for her beautiful card that you can see on Nichole's blog. I've been thinking all week about which dies to use when I could sneak off to my craft room. Since I need a birthday card for my sister-in-law next week, this was the perfect opportunity. Quick glance it appears several have entered the challenge already so I'll make this quick.

Using Clear Vellum to make my masks, I die cut two flower sizes using Beautiful Blooms II Dies #1. The larger flower was blended with Lovely Lady and the two smaller ones with Autumn Rose. The leaves were added using New Leaf ink with the Make It Market Mini Kit: Color Pop Florals stencil. My ink splatters were created using a black watercolor and paintbrush, and the black rhinestones added some extra bling. "Sending" from Wet Paint Cuts III was die cut in black and adhered directly to the white layer. "Birthday Wishes" from Painted Petals was stamped in black on white and popped up using SU Dimensionals. This was layered on True Black before adding to a white card base. That's it for me. I'll be out of town for the weekend so will comment after my return. Thanks for stopping by ~ appreciate your comments.

This is such a pretty card with soft colors and touches of black. Another die I have to store in my brain to use in the future!

Kathy, your card is pun intended :)
I have always loved that Beautiful Blooms flower.
Your leaves were perfect. I struggled with leaves on the last challenge. Those work great!

The Blooms are a perfect choice for this technique, Kathy. The thin black border peeking out adds a nice touch too.
Have a great weekend
