I wanted to try blending my Aqua Tints using those mini ink blending foam to see how it worked. I would say it probably depends a bit on the paper you use (just like when you blend distress ink) but you can get pretty good results and it uses less ink than when you paint it on. I just used the droppers to drop straight onto the foam and blended in circular motions. After I was done I just rinsed out the foam so I can re-use it. I used colors from the Pretty Pastel set to get a soft background.
I discut the hello using a Winnie & Walter die and some tiny hearts for decoration. The top is cut with a Mama Elephant die. I also doodled some dots for detail and finished of by painting little dots of the clear Sparkle pen by Spectrum Noir randomly over the background to give it some shimmer.
