However; this card can also be turned into a Valentine or a Mother’s Day card which gives you some versatility. In todays video I show you how to use eyeshadow brushes to color your images using Memento and Delicata Inks. I hope you enjoy the video. Thanks so much for watching.

Hello and welcome! Katy here with a new video. Today I have a new way of ink blending to share with you that anyone can do. I know may people struggle with ink blending in general and the technique I share with you in the video couldn’t be simpler to replicate and is a bit easier on the hands and wrists. I also talk a bit about the difference between hot and cold pressed watercolor paper for those that may not know and for a change of pace I used Memento inks to do my ink blending and created a beautiful crisp winter night sky.
