Happy hump day crafty people! How are you doing? Today there is a new challenge launching at the Back to Basics and Beyond blog. The prompt this time is to use a spray.
I picked out some floral stamps from a magazine gift and a sentiment from a Hunkydory For the Love of Stamps set.
I stamped the posy of flowers and heat embossed it in clear on white card stock. I used inks and a water brush to paint the flowers and leaves.
Then I made a mask for the flowers by stamping onto a post it and fussy cutting it out. I covered the stamped image and then added some ink through a home made stencil (used a Tonic Studios background leaf die). I had seen someone using a make up brush like this for ink and bought a few very cheaply on ebay. I am so impressed, the ink goes on really evenly and smoothly. I’ve got a few brushes that were pretty expensive and are specifically for applying ink and I don’t do a good job with them! I always seem to end up with very uneven colour but these brushes are fab! I took away the stencil and then sprayed some ink from a height. I liked how there is some fine mist as well as some larger splashes. The colour I used is buttercup.
To finish off I stamped the sentiment and then mounted on some dark green card before adding to the card front.
I hope you will pop over to check out the rest of the design team projects as there are some beauties there. Let me know if you are joining in with the challenge, you can use any spray at all (ink, bleach, mica etc). Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope to see you again soon.
