Hi there everyone! Erum here with Creative Coloring with Erum and today I am sharing a quick and easy handmade card featuring coloring with ink blending.

Today’s project features the Smiles and Hugs Stamp Set.

I used Embossing Ink to stamp the images on white cardstock and embossed them with Pure White Embossing Powder. Next, I used a blending brush to add Aqualicious Crisp Dye Ink to the center of the flower and pulled it outwards. The next color I added was Dew Drops Crisp Dye Ink which is a gorgeous minty green color.

For the leaves, I chose Lava Rock Crisp Dye Ink for the middle and I blended it out with Evening Gray Crisp Dye Ink.

Once the images were done, I fussy cut them out. You can even use the coordinating dies to die cut them.

For the card front, I kept the design minimal and added just black paint splatters from the Watercolor 36 Pan Set. Next, I arranged my floral arrangement on foam tape.

I went with “with deepest sympathy” sentiment from the Wildflower Garden Stamp Set. To finish off, I adhered a few gems.

You can watch the process video below or on YouTube in HD.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you were inspired to try coloring with ink blending on your next handmade card!

I love watercolour cards! However, I am not that great at painting so I love simple techniques that I can copy. This is one that has stunning results that looks simple enough for me to try and copy. Thanks so much for sharing!
