Hey friends! This card is a quickie using the ink blending technique showcased over at Papertrey Ink this week. I used a great digital image from Cathe Holden at JustSomethingIMade. Once I opened the deer and tree silhouette image in Word, I was able to crop it to size and add the sentiment "Happy Birthday to our Son" easily by layering a text box with the font color set to white.
Before using my inking tool and dye inks to colorize the background, I sprayed a quick layer of clear spray paint to set the inkjet printer ink and stop it from smearing when I was swirling on the ink. Simple! And such an easy way to bring depth to a nature scene. Thanks for stopping by...no go ink something :)
