How to create a torn edge blended background? Well it is a very easy process. See the uneven edge where the blended in colour meet the Basic White card? That is the torn edge appearance. It looks like a separate layer on your card when it actually isn’t!
To do this technique grab a large Post-It note and tear along the very edge of the sticky portion. Adhere the stick section onto your card piece to mask off the area you want to keep clean. Start blending, using a sponge or blending brush, your inks commencing with the lightest colour. Keep the Post-It note in place until you finish and are happy with the colour depth you have created.
Here I started with Crushed Curry, then moved onto Pumpkin Pie and finished with Cinnamon Cider ink. I then went back over the change of colour edges with one of the matching colours to better blend the colours merging together. Once you are happy with the colour depth and blended edges remove the Post-It note and marvel at whet you have created!
The stamped images come from Enjoy the Moment stamp set. I love the detail in these images and I am a sucker for nature style images. They were stamped using Early Espresso ink.
Enjoy trying out this lovely technique and creating your own torn edge blended backgrounds.
