Today, I'm going to show you a great technique that helps ‘soften' colors using white pigment ink. I started by stamping the large image from Build-A-Garden Sweet Lilies onto a piece of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock using Jet Black Ink.
I then colored the stamped image using the coordinating Simple Coloring Stencil and some Mini Ink Blending Tools. The inks I used are Cherry Sweet, Tickled Pink, Be Grapeful, Berry Cool, Tangerine Dream, Lemonade Stand, and Lettuce Celebrate Fresh Dye Inks.
To add more detail and depth the to images I added a little shading to the inked flowers using Artist Markers in colors Ruby Red, Rubellite, Lagoon, Ultraviolet, Marigold, and Honey Drizzle. Once the image was fully colored I die cut the image and then cut down the center. I moved one half of the image over to the side and then on the other I inked over the whole piece using Cloud White Pigment Ink– this added a layer of ink adding a pastel look to the usually bright inks used on the image.
To finish off the cards I used a strip of patterned paper from Essential Black & White Paper Pack and the sentiments are from the same stamp set. To see how these cards came together please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:
