Today I made a card for Make It Monday using an ink blending technique taught to us by Betsy Veldman. For this card I used kraft cardstock and first blended fresh snow ink in the center of the card. Then I went in with some pure poppy and blended it all around the edges of the card. Something I didn't think of as I was working on this, red and white = pink! Not the color I was going for, but I did learn a good lesson. I won't be using such a dark and a light shade together anytime soon. The rose is actually something I am really proud of. First time I have colored such a big image with copics that I was willing to show to anyone in public. My good friend Renee Lynch actually sent me a three step picture tutorial on how to color this rose and without her help, I'm pretty sure I would never have finished it. She even lent me the Year of the Flower-Rose set to practice on. I really admire those people who can color these huge images and have the result be a natural color and smooth finish. It is not that easy! Thanks for taking a look at my "pink" blended card.
