Another Unconvention challenge. They were all so inspiring, I’m just going to keep sharing until they are all done.
Richelle’s technique was inspired by her children’s school artwork! Remember blowing paint around the page? This is the grown-ups Stampin’ Up! version using reinkers. It takes lots of puff, so don’t try this after a long run. Luckily for me, I don’t run anywhere…
Steps (in Richelle’s own words):
1) Take a piece of glossy or watercolour paper
2) Spritz it lightly with water and drop a couple of drops of your desired colours onto your cardstock
3) Working quickly, blow the ink around your paper… If you want to do it school style, blow through a straw. You can add each colour as a seperate layer and allow to dry in between or using a few colours together they can blend better.
4) Allow to dry or if you are impatient like me, use a hair dryer or heat gun (careful you don’t overheat and burn or melt your paper – yes I have created air bubbles of melted glossy paper in previous projects!)
5) Use to create a card, scrap page or anything you desire
This is my ‘artwork’! Yes, I used Wetlands (again). That stamp set lends itself to every technique!!! Do you like the “framed” look on this card? Yes, it’s the Harwood background stamp – again! Thank goodness there’s a new catalogue coming out soon. I hope to find some new favourites to bombard you with. Kelly x
