I’ve been playing along with some of the SCS Hope You Can Cling Too challenges that are supporting women battling breast cancer – in the end you have to mail all your cards to a specific clinic and it’s been a lot of fun and very inspiring. This challenge was to “smoosh” inks on glossy cardstock but I went with Bristol Watercolor paper that I had on hand from A Muse Studio. I used Orange, Blush, Grapefruit and a touch of Gold Dust Splash – just a few of the 30 colors A Muse Studio carries. I love the versatility of these sprays and here is just one more example of how wonderful they are – you should see this paper shimmer in real life, it’s glorious!
The top card is my second “dip” into the watered down dots of Splash and below is a third impression into the inks using a scrap of Bristol cardstock since I didn’t want anything to go to waste!
The rest of the cards are pretty much the same – I used Versafine Onyx ink [NOTE: it takes a long time to dry on this paper/splash combo – longer than you would expect! I have a panel that I can not show because of the smudges I got after handling it too early] to stamp my Stained Glass Poppy from A Muse Studio and I also used it on their Stamp Out Breast Cancer set for my two different sentiments. The last step was merely to outline my main panel with either a gold paint pen or black copic marker and then I mounted them on some Vanilla amuse studio cardstock.
