Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Ink Swiped Background

Hi Everybody,

Todays card has been created with an Ink Swiped Background. 

I used a pad of yellow ink and simply swiped it down the card leaving splotches of the ink along it. 

Then I cut a Mandala shape out of parchment and added it off centre to the card front..

The flowers are from Altenew and are some from the monthly subscription kit Project Life, called Hello Beautiful.

There are so many ways that this kit can be used and I am happy that I subscribed to it each month.

 I will be using this one a lot more, colouring my flowers in different mediums.

Altogether I think this is a pretty card and it was so easy to make. 

The background is unique and just a simple swipe of the ink pad. Then just allow it to dry blotchy for a novel look.

More tomorrow .
Hugs xx

  3. Good Evening Christina. A lovely card today. If I did that with an ink pad it would be all over the place. I tried it once but it didn't look anything like yours does. Thankyou Christina. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone
