This card was made with an Inky Antics clear stamp set #11105MC Potted Violets.
I achieved a blended result in my work with rubber stamps without expensive materials. I used mineral spirits or gumsol, which breaks down the pencil color and a blending stump (a blending stump or tortillon is a cylindrical drawing tool, tapered at the end and made of rolled paper) distributes the color throughout the image. The technique gives a professional finish to my project.
Here are some photos illustrating the making of this card:
