Water, Ink Blending and Masking Techniques

Catherine General

Today we hopped on LIVE to play with the some of the stamps and dies in our new April Showers Bring…Collection! We tried a couple of techniques and the results were spectacular (if I do say so myself!)

Our first card involved ink blending and embossing to create this super cute umbrella. The Under the Umbrella Die is a fan fav and you can see why! I just love how this looks with the water spritz effect. CP Inks are water reactive and that gives it such cool texture.

The second card we used the same ink blending and water technique but we had a bit of extra fun testing out our two new masking fluids. We masked off the flowers on the background piece before we ink blended and then rolled off the medium to reveal this great contrasting result.

To see the whole thing go down, check out the FB Live Replay here.

We hope this inspires you. What are your crafty plans for this weekend?
