Make It Monday #8: Ink Blending Techniques

Just a quick tag I put together to try out the blending techniques which are featured in Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday series #8 (Ink Blending Techniques):

Here's how it was made --

A 4.25" x 5.5" piece of Grafix low tack frisket film was cut out in the center with a Spellbinders Labels 4 die.  The center cutout was placed over the stamped image (PTI Year of Flowers: Roses) on PTI Stamper's Select white card stock.  Tim Holtz Antique Linen was blended over the frisket with a blender tool.  Then the frisket was removed and the 4.25" x 5.5" outline piece of frisket film was placed over the image to exactly cover the blended ink.   The interior of the design was then blended, using a pale grey ink, then the tag was die cut with the largest Labels 4 die.  The mat behind the tag was hand cut from a cream-colored handmade paper after tracing around the largest die.  The image was colored with Copics, and a line of pink eyelash yarn was adhered between the layers. The sentiment on the tag came from the PTI set Birthday Basics, and was curved on the acrylic block before stamping.  The embellishment at the top of the tag was punched from pink patterned paper using a Martha Stewart corner punch and a technique learned from Becca Feeken's blog.

That's all for now, thanks for looking!
