Technique of the Month - Torn Edge Ink Blending

Hello Everyone! Welcome to my blog!
I am back with "Technique of the Month" for July 2017. This month's technique is "Torn Edge Ink Blending".

I have always face difficulty making CAS and one layered cards. So I am trying to explore more those categories of cards, hence this month I decided to go for it using this technique.

So before we dive into the technique, let's have a look at today's card first, shall we...???

Technique: The technique is really very simple. I have created a short video to explain the process. I hope that helps.

I am submitting this card to:

hope you all liked it. I would love to hear back from you all. Thank you very much for taking your time to notice it. Hope to hear again from all of  u soon. Till then take care. :)

PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding :-)
