Easy Ink blending techniques - Altenew Educator Certification Program

Good morning and a happy new year to you all

This year I am determined to improve my crafting skills, as such I am currently working my way through Altenew Academy classes and today I am sharing a card made using skills from the Easy Ink Blending techniques course.

I created my card by blending an ombre background in shades of teal. I flicked some water at it and dabbed with tissue, this leaves a bleached effect creating added interest in my project.

I die cut a cover panel using Altenews layered medallion A die, I adhered this to my ombre background and then blended another smaller piece of card to use to die cut my sentiment. I also cut 4 more sentiments from white card and stacked them together using glossy accents to create a faux chipboard sentiment.

Die cutting the Hugs sentiment from the same ombre as tused in the background ties the look together, I added a wrap of vellum and adhere the sentiment and some AB sequins.

I am thrilled with the results of this project and hope you enjoy it too.

Here's links to the items I used

Many thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Superb ink-blending. I love the mix of water drops in the background!! You are on a roll, Teri!
