You'll need these basics...
1. Ranger's craft sheet
2. 2 colors of distress inks. I used broken china & vintage photo.
3. Ranger's blending tool/foam pad
4. Ranger's mini mister, filled with water
5. Heat tool...you got it...made by Ranger.
Start by covering the entire tag in the lighter color of distress ink. Start on the craft sheet & bring the color onto the tag in a circular motion, using the blending tool. This is the secret to no blotchy spots.
Now add the second color, to create this look.
Next... using the mini mister, squirt some water into your hands & FLICK the water onto the tag. I made the drops larger than normal to make them easier to see. Notice how the water lifts the distress ink?? Let the drops sit for 10 seconds & then dry with the heat tool.
Now add some embellishments...
The stamp is from Stampers Anonymous # U5-1203
Some fun metal flowers from Maya Road. They're from the trinkets collection & they are the blossoms...# TK763.
A little pen stitching around the edge and a few dots from a gel pen & you get this.
Here's a closer look @ the water marks & the metal flowers. You can see that I bent the flower petals up to create dimension.
There you have it...SPRITZ & FLICK!! See why I LOVE this technique....Try some other colors...use 3 colors...use this as a starting point & make it your own.
I'll show some other variations soon.
On to some other things........
If you read this post a few days ago, I'm copying Cecile's comment for all to see. Here it is.........
Thanks to everyone who made such nice comments about my gift to Wendy. I had a lot of fun making it. I don’t get much time to do this, so it was all that much more enjoyable. I’m sure it is further enhanced by all the cool art that will surround it in Wendy and Rick’s home! By the way, can you see the influence from Wendy in this piece? It's there!
And here's your reward for reading this whole post...
Next Friday...that's APRIL 11th... there will be an exciting give-away here. Don't miss out!! REALLY good...and I'm NOT exaggerating!!
Hmmmmmmmmm...I bet it involves...rubber. And, another hint...it's NOT from Stampers Anonymous...
Have a GREAT weekend.
Try spritz & flick & show me what you made.
Sharing is good. VERY good!!
