I just MIGHT have gotten this technique figured out. We were going to do the Spreading Ink Technique at our Team Meeting tonight (it got cancelled due to low registration because our fearless leader, Tamye, is in Orlando on the incentive trip) ......I was suppose to help run the meeting, and figured I better try this technique YET AGAIN, to see if I could do it.
I followed the tutorial on our demonstrator website and achieved a bit more success. I think the trick is to remember to dab the ink onto the soaked paper - use the aqua painter to brush the water on instead of just spritzing the paper with water. I also used glossy paper for the first time. I've tried regular card stock and shimmer card stock in the past.
Also - I like the above flower best (I created 4) - and I think it's because I used only one colour so there was no chance for "mud" to form.
Because I created the 4 flowers, I used this Poppy Parade one on the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches this week. Again - I used just the one colour.
I'm frantically getting ready for my All Occasion Card Stack this weekend.....hope you've got some excitement planned for the near future - something to look forward to.
Thanks for visiting for a while.
