Ink Blended Letterpress Arch Card with Collage Stamping

Mixing techniques is one of my favorite ways to create! I mixed ink blending, letterpress, and stack and collage stamping to make this easy card.

I used my BetterPress Letterpress Platform and pressed the "sending hugs" sentiment as well as one of the arches from the Arches Hello Impress-ion Press + Foil Plates into an A2 Cotton Watercolor Panel with Raven Hybrid Ink. I used the smallest Arch Die to cut out the arch and added the sentiment on top with foam tape. 

I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4" x 5.25" and used an Arch Spotlight Stencil to blend Soft Kisses Ink into the center of the panel. I kept the concentration of ink darker towards the bottom and lighter towards the top. I used Alloy and Soft Kisses Hybrid Inks to stamp various images from the Texturize It Collage 4x6 Stamps in a diagonal pattern from the bottom left towards the top right of the panel.

I used foam tape to adhere the arch die-cut piece to the center of the stamped panel and added everything to a black card base. That's it! I'll see you again soon!
