Spritzed Background

Today's card is using what I call a Spritzed Background technique - it probably is called something else out there on the internet. I learned about this technique a couple months ago while visiting a friend, and it's so easy and interesting because it turns out differently every time you do it. First, lay out a large piece of wax paper. Then tap the ink from your inkpad or inkspot all over in the center of your wax paper (try not to muddy the colors together too much). Spray the ink from a little spray bottle with water, then press your paper on top and lift up immediately (in my case, I used a tag). Let it dry or use your heatgun to dry the ink - your paper or tag may curl, but it flattens back out well enough.

I stamped the butterfly image in black ink, and sponged the tag's edges in browns. I heat-embossed the sentiment in Versamark and white embossing powder. Lastly I spritzed some Shimmer Paint spray around, as well as used alittle paintbrush to apply the paint on the butterfly/flower image. Everything was matted/layered and assembled. I have to take off now, but I will try to update this entry with the supplies used later on. This card was a bit tricky to photograph, but I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for teaching me this cool technique, Sheri! See you all next time...
