Video: Simple Card with Stunning Distress Ink Blending Effect

Distress Ink BlendingMy last blog article showcased a simple card with a gorgeous red/ orange ink blending effect. I like this design so much that I had to create two more cards, this time with a blue/ green blending. Again, I used Ranger Distress Ink two create this stunning effect. But this time, I made a video to show you the single steps.

I’m sorry for all the “ehms”! I’m still a little uncomfortable in front of the microphone, but this is a really good way for me to practice my English skills. So please bare with me till it gets better πŸ˜‰

You are wonderful

I hope you enjoyed my card (again). Please, if you make a similar design, let me know. I’d love to see your creations! πŸ™‚


  1. how do you attach the blending tool circles to the bottom of the stamp pad? I love that idea!

    • Hi Susan, I use regular self-adhesive fastener that I got at Home Depot (I think, otherwise Walmart or similar), cut a tiny part from the role, and adhere it to the back πŸ™‚

  2. Hi what kind of paper cardstock you used?actually i face a problem.I used Irish Paper card stock for distress ink is very good when am blending but the problem is that after few hours the color gets fade.not gave that actual look.what should I do please suggest.

    • Hi, for distress inks I’m using 120lb card stock. Either Neenah solar white or, if I’m just testing something, the cheap card stock from Sam’s club – also 120lb.
