Blending Brushes #153611

20220814_085430

Have you tried Stampin' Up!'s Blending Brushes #153611? They are fun and amazing! I used the brushes with the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks #159178. You might also call these "stencils."

 

20220811_182418

Simply collect ink on your brush, directly from an ink pad. Secure the mask over your card stock. Use light pressure on your brush to apply the ink. Heavier pressure will increase your color intensity. I wanted a SOFT application for backgrounds. Color does not have to be perfectly even. Let it vary for some for interest!

 

20220814_085500

This is one of my favorite stamp sets, Sending Smiles Bundle #158707.  Note how I curved the sentiment. It's easy to do with pliable photopolymer stamps!
