Masked ink blended whimsy scene - Hero Arts: Need A Hand

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. Scene building is such a great way to build a card, but the scene doesn't always have to take over the whole of the card. Masked ink blended whimsy scenes are great for creating a small scene that jumps off the card as though you've caught a moment in time.  I used the fun Need A Hand stamp set from Hero Arts and it comes with some beautiful whimsy underwater stamps. Paired with ink blending and white space you have two modern whimsy cards! 

Written and photos Masked ink blended whimsy scene: 

Card 1:

To start off, trim a scrap piece of card down to 5.5"x 4.25 and position a circle from the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies from Hero Arts. Run this through your die-cutting machine and you know have your mask made for the first card. 

 

Temporarily adhere your masked template down to a card panel ready for ink blending. Next, using a selection of blue inks and the Altenew Ink Blending Tool, ink blend ink into your circle mask. 

 

You don't need more than one tool to create this look as you can start off with your lightest blue, and transition to your darkest blue with the same brush.

Next, stamp the two jellyfish onto white 80lb card in alcohol friendly ink and briefly heat set with your heat gun. Using Copic Markers, colour the jellyfish in and then use the coordinating dies to die cut out the images. 
Next, with dark grey ink, stamp one of the seaweed and the fishes onto the card panel, allowing these to stamp off the masked circle for a more interesting design. Using foam pads, adhere the jellyfish to the front of the card. Take a sentiment from the stamp set and heat emboss this onto black card. 
To finish the card off, add the sentiment offset to one side and embellish with a few iridescent sequins. 

Card 2:

For this card, die-cut a rectangle out from scrap card using the Nesting rectangle infinity dies from Hero Arts. Again, temporarily adhere this to a card panel ready for ink blending. 
Next, add the link to the masked area and blending from light to dark. Once complete, remove the mask. Stamp a selection of additional images (seaweed, fishes and bubbles to the background) and set to one side.
For this card, stamp the octopus and starfish in Copic friendly ink and colour in. Once coloured, use the coordinating dies to die-cut these out. 
Foam mount the die-cut images onto the card, offset off the masked ink blended scene for a more interesting design. 
Add another heat embossed sentiment to the front of the card and embellish once more with iridescent sequins, scattering around the card. 
If you struggle with scene building, perhaps try creating a small ink blended area to concentrate the scene around. You may find it easy to design to complete with a smaller space. 
If you enjoyed today's card, please let us know and we would love to see your cards if this has inspired you.
