Well, you may have noticed, if you have been looking at my sidebar, that I have joined the design team for Dyan at Art From the Heart, with her new range Altered Elements. Woooop woooooooop! Needless to say I am more than happy about this :-)))) Also on the design team are Dyan herself, Dina Wakley, Kirsty Wiseman, and Bessie Su, so I am in VERY good company and feel very honoured.
I have been playing with the new spray inks again today. I am a firm believer in 'playing' with new products to see how they behave and anyway, I don't need much of an excuse to mess about in the craft room! These inks in HOT HOT HOT colours can be really really bright and vibrant if you spray them direct to card or paper. Look at this:
I sprayed a few colours, then added splashes of water before blotting with kitchen roll. I also added a few squirts and then tipped the card upright to get some drips running down. I just LOVE these colours :-)
I decided to make an ATC which I haven't done in ages. I stamped a Tim Holtz background stamp, and then stamped the Stampotique figure onto paper. To colour her in I sprayed some of the inks onto my craft mat and then watered them down a little before painting. The words are Dyan's Downloads.
Now, because I love beeswax, I added a coating over the whole thing before finishing with a bit of rusty wire and ribbon.
If you would like to own this miniature piece of art, then leave me a comment and I'll use either random.org, or a random small child (!) to pick a number. You have got until ....... Monday.
Bye for now. Enjoy the weekend.
