Hello there everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here. Today, I’ll be sharing a video where I show the difference between ink blending on vellum; on the top and the back.
If you want to learn how to do this technique, keep on reading!
I did this two times so I could see if there was any difference when ink blending with dye inks on different sides of the vellum. I then colored the images using Vibrant Blooms Simple Coloring Stencil – I inked one image on the top and the other from behind.
I used Nimbus and Dark Night Inks for the flowers, Chamomile Ink for the flower centers, and Sea Forest Inks for the leaves. Once the images were dry, I fussy cut around them.
I then added this to a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” panel of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock and adhered the fussy cut images into place. I used two stamps from the Circled Sentiments Stamp Set to add the sentiments.
As the dye ink dyes the paper, I can see that inking on the top or bottom doesn’t make much difference in the overall look. But I would recommend the technique of inking behind more as it is less messy.
