Video: Using Ink Blending Brushes for a Nighttime Scene

Jul 26, 2021 Hero Arts

Hello! Daniel, here, with a bit about the Hero Arts Ink Blending Brushes. These versatile tools have a permanent place in my paper crafting arsenal. I like the white bristles, so I know exactly what ink color they hold. The handles flex with the strength you apply so you get the intensity of color application you want. 

I use them to create ink blended backgrounds and vignettes. But you can also create light effects and scenery backgrounds, like I did in the video for this project. Catch the details of how I created this project's background with Ink Blending Brushes on the Hero Arts YouTube channel.

(If you are having trouble viewing this video, please watch here on YouTube.)

I love creating scenes with trees and reflecting them in water. Here, I used the Magical Forest and You're My Universe stamp sets together!

I hope you enjoy this project give it a try! Have a super day!
