Hey Crafters! We are back with a brand new Tuesday Challenge. This week we decided to get messy and dig out the spray ink.
For this project I wanted to use a spray ink that was highly reactive to water. This allows me to create a colorful background with tons of dimension without a lot of bulk.
I also pulled out a few stamps, paint and clocks. These days I am feeling very aware of the passage of time. That was the spring board for the project this week.
So dig out those bottles and lets get started.
All year long I am creating ATC cards for my Project Inspiration wall. You can read more about it here. My quote/sentiment for this week is: Time is our constant companion.....use it wisely.
This week we are focusing on spray ink. Sprays inks come in many different styles and brands. They were hugely popular a few years back.....so I'm betting you have a few in your stash. You might even have a few old Glimmer Mist bottles that are hopelessly clogged. At least mine are. That were my first journey into misting sprays and I as not impressed. It to me several years to try again.
In the past few years I have found much love and appreciation for spray ink. It is a versatile and fun color medium to use. My favorite brands include, Dylusions, Tim Holtz, Lindy's Stamp Gang and Prima. (You totally saw the Tim Holtz and Prima brands coming....right?)
