Thinking of You-Spritzing and Spraying!

Although coloring will always be my favorite card related activity, I do love to play with a new technique every now and again. One in particular that I have come to love is 'Spritzing and Spraying'. It really is very easy! All you need is a mister (I love my mini mister by ranger) and some dye ink.

  1. Ink up your stamp (for alot of these layers I used my marveys to ink up the top of the flower in a different color than the stem.
  2. Spray various degrees of water on your stamp(more water=less of an image will come out)
  3. Stamp!
  4. Repeat with various levels of water and stamping off to create layers of images
  5. Lastly, Ink and Stamp one non-watered layer.
  6. Add sentiment and bow

Easy Peasy!!!!

Happy Stamping!!!
