I am so happy to be rounding out day 25 of our 25 days of CSS inspiration! I hope you've enjoyed having the team show off new ideas and techniques every day for the last few weeks.
My project today is "no-stamps-required" and yes, it feels weird to have written that *grin*
I die cut all of my letters out of masking paper and arranged them on a piece of white cardstock. I then used crudely cut strips of the masking paper to help me define the wavy lines of sponged colors. I worked my ink blending tools from top to bottom, orange to dark blue. In case there are curious minds out there, I did not use Distress Inks. As long as you are patient, work off some of the excess ink onto a scrap paper first, and use circular motions on your cardstock, you can use almost any ink and get smooth results.
Masking is so addictive. When you pull up the masks, the heavens open up and tiny little birdies start to sing.
You're hearing it right now, I know it.
It's is the nearest thing to a print that this stampy gal could ever hope to create. In person, it is even more stunning and perfect looking.
Also, I should have taken a picture of my hands post-project. So ink-dirty that it's a wonder nothing got smudged...
