emboss resist


Those Picket Fence Life-changing brushes literally have changed my ink-blending life. I didn’t have paper in these exact colors so I faked it! •chinkle• By that, I just mean that I white embossed the sentiment multiple times (from Everyday Punnies) onto white card stock, trimmed it apart into strips and then used the brushes and Catherine Pooler Inks to blend over the top.

I ALWAYS struggled with the ink blending tool no matter how much I practiced. (insert frowny face) There’s something about the handle on these brushes, tho, that makes a huge difference for me—my grip is naturally, and almost unconsciously, loose and the flexibility of the handle prevents me from applying too much pressure, especially wonderful when I’m trying to achieve a “pale” blend. Super satisfying. •fist pump•

Hope YOU are having a bloomin’ good day and thanks for stopping by!
