Markers and Ink Blending for a Quick and Simple Birthday Card

Kristina Werner, a wonderful card-maker and card-making teacher, recently posted a series of Instagram posts showing some ink-blending combinations. You can see those posts here. Those posts were the inspiration for this card. I used a panel of blended Distress Inks corresponding to the marker colors I used on the gift stamp to set off the gift box panel.

  • Stamp - Brutus Monroe Stacked Gifts Stamp Set

  • Markers - Faber Castell Pitt Artist Brush Pens and Sakura Pigma Micron Pens in various tip sizes

  • Ink Blended Panel - Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, and Chipped Sapphire.

  • Sentiment is embossed with Hero Arts Embossing Powder in Gold.
