I never had it easy with distress inks and used to watch other crafters blend colors seamlessly in awe. Everyone advised ‘not putting pressure’ and practice as key to doing it perfectly. But I figured the actual answer – let your sponge get seasoned with lots of ink. So when u practice, the sponge soaks in the ink and makes the application uniform. I started using distress inks about 4 months back and they are finally good to me now!
I die cut a circle on a piece of paper and used it as a stencil to make this ombré effect. The distress inks used are mentioned in the supplies list below.A close look to see the colors blend into each other..
