Just a quick post to share with you......well.....random playing, I suppose! I recently bought my first few bottles of spray inks/misters/whatever you call them! And I had some new stamps, well I when I get new stuff I just want to play, so I got a few pieces of scrap card, bits that had been chopped off bigger pieces etc and started to squirt and blast and spray, getting used to the mix of colours and how they worked. Then I added salt to the wet areas, on some I dried it with my heat tool while the biggest piece I left overnight. Then I stamped!
This is with the salt left on.
On this one I put salt on first and sprayed over the top to leave white bits!
This is my fav, I used Distressed inks around the edge after the inks had dried to blend away the bits I'd missed.
You can see the texture and the pitted look the salt leaves.
This is the large sheet once the salt was removed. Really interesting effect, this was a thinner piece of card than the others.
Hard to see in the photos but the sheen of the mica really makes such a pretty effect.
I also spent some time sorting my Distress inks, I bought a roll of the hook part of Velcro and stuck it to the lids on each ink pad, then attached a foam blending square, so that now every colour I own has it's own pad! Oh yeah and I labelled them all too.
Anyway thanks for popping by as always, I'm going to have an early lunch then I'm going to get crafting and actually try and make something!
Take care Zo xx
