Ink Spray Birthday Cards

Hi everyone!  There is a new class going on now over on StampNation called Eat, Sleep, Create.  It is a Mixed Media Class for card makers!

The first couple of tutorials went up last week and another one was posted this morning.  The first couple of lessons are about Art Journaling and today's lesson is about using the Art Journaling techniques on ATCs (Artist Trading Cards).

I have not gotten into Art Journaling and am not a big Mixed Media fan, but I can definitely use the techniques shared in the class on my hand made cards.  I was a bit intimidated at first with this class because I am definitely a clean and simple card maker, but I have found ways to use the techniques on my clean and simple cards.

Today's card show just how I did that.

I grabbed some watercolor card stock and my Dylusions ink sprays and had some fun getting inky with the ink dripping technique.  Basically you spray your ink sprays one at a time towards the top of your paper and then spritz with some water and let the sprays drip down your paper.  Let gravity do the work for you.  I love the bold colors you get from the ink sprays.

I then took a stencil and placed it randomly over the panel and swiped with a baby wipe which removed some of the ink and created a ghosting effect.

Here is a close up.

Stamp a sentiment and add a strip of Black Tie Gala paper at the bottom.  Twine finishes off my card.  Below is another card using different colors.
