VIDEO | MFT Spotlight Ink Blending

Hello there, I am over on the My Favorite Things YouTube Channel today sharing a card using the beautiful Wild Poppies Stamp Set. This is such a beautiful set that can be used in lots of different ways but I wanted to do something a little different today and create a card with spotlight ink blending. 

I have made cards using spotlight colouring before, in fact, this card is a CASE of one of my own cards using that technique but I wanted to try and recreate it using ink blending. I started off by stamping the large image from the MFT Wild Poppies Stamp Set on to a panel of white cardstock with MFT Extreme Black Ink. I could have stamped it directly on the card base but I am never sure what I want to do next, so tend to work on panels and then adhere them to the card base. 

I then stamped the same image on to another panel of cardstock. On to this panel, I blended Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire using blending brushes. I took the MFT Stitched Circle Stax Die-namics and die cut three circles from the panel. I also die cut a further two circles of each size from white cardstock. 

The circle pieces were adhered one on top of another with the ink blended one at the top. The main panel was adhered flat to an A2 white card base with tape runner and then the circle pieces added on top with MFT On Point Precision Glue, lining them up with the image on the panel. I then took the sentiment from the set, stamped it on to MFT Black Licorice Cardstock with Versamark Ink, applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip using an MFT Skinny Strips Die-namics and adhered to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Iridescent Crystals. 


Here is the video showing how I made the card:

  1. What a great idea to do spotlight with ink blending instead of colouring it. I need to remember that. I love that colour combination of blues/bluey purples! Excellent video too. I might just have to give that a go! xx
