I’m back with another colour combination in the mini series of ink blending with CP inks. This time using the Zen Garden collection. You can find out more about the ink colours and what makes them different from other inks at this blog post. Find the other posts in this mini series here.
I will continue this mini series on ink blending with CP inks for each collection of colours. When I have all these swatches with each collection individually, I will then have a good visual to see which colours from other collections will blend well together.
Three Colour Blends
First up for the Spa Collection is Zen Garden. I lay out the inks on my desk in rainbow order and picked three that were next to each other. The card I use is Bristol Vellum trimmed to 4.5” x 2” and I use the Life-Changing Blending Brushes for the blending. One brush for each colour.
Red – Blue Blends
Polished, Shea Butter, Seafoam
Spruce, Seafoam Shea Butter
Spruce, Seafoam, Skylight
Seafoam, Skylight, Stone Blue
Blue – Yellow Blends
Skylight, Stone Blue and Sugared Lavender
Sugared Lavender, Polished and Rose Petals
Rose Petals, Polished and Shea Butter.
Two Colour Blends
Again I tried some two colour blends just using the primary colours – Polished, Shea Butter and Stone Blue
The main point of this mini series is seeing which colours will blend well together. Another bonus is seeing which ink pads need refilling. I go into more detail about how I use the Blending Brush Scrubber in the first post in this series which features the Spring Fling colours.
Leave a comment if you would like these ink blend swatches all together as an A4 printable. I’ll have another post in this mini-series soon featuring more Catherine Pooler Designs ink colour blends.
