Whew! Are you getting sick of me yet? I may just be getting tired of myself, hee hee. A few more days of posts and I promise to give you all a break...
The new lawnscaping assignment challenged all of us on the design team! And now we're asking you to try out a new-to-you technique.
copic-ink-refill background and decided I liked the watery effect that it gave enough to break out my "critters in the sea" set.
The technique is simple: on a sheet of glossy photo-paper, I squirted a few drops of copic re-inkers. I opted for 2 different blues, and a light beige (which I only dropped in a few places, to simulated the light hitting the water.) As soon as the ink hit the glossy paper, it begins to spread. I continued to add drops until I was satisfied with the coverage. Then, the fun part: using hand sanitizer to keep the ink away from certain spots. I filled a shallow cup with some hand-sanituzer, and used a toilet paper roll and a napkin to push the ink away. I wanted my ink to bleed quite a bit and not show any obvious rings, so I dabbed the napkin over the entire area in the end.
Hope you join us this week - I can't wait to see what other techniques pop up in our gallery! The challenge is being sponsored by lawn fawn - so try your hand for a chance to win!
