I have another Christmas card for you to take a peek at.
This is not the first try!
Let's put it this way, I'm glad there's 2 sides to the paper!
I tried to splatter masking fluid and discovered that I need more practice at that.
Lots more practice!
As you can see, there isn't any speckles.
What actually landed on the paper came off on my paint brush.
And I did wait til it was dry.
It wasn't fun picking those little goo balls of the brush.
I guess I pulled my brush too hard?
Anyway, this is a NBUS stamp that I just had to have last Christmas.
I'm finally getting around to using it.
I tried inking the stamp with markers and stamping.
My MISTI works wonderfully for this technique.
After playing with the first try, and failing,
I spritzed the stamp and stamped on another piece of mixed media paper.
Usually this doesn't work for me, but today it did!
Then, I worked some wet on wet wash around the image.
I thought about adding some splatters, but thought I'd better stop
and call it well enough.
I did brave stamping a sentiment.
Even with MISTI, I hold my breath when I add a sentiment!
The design piece is mounted on a piece of foam then to the card base.
The lovely Darnell is holding her
In case you haven't checked out her blog lately, she has given us
lots of laughs this week using cheeky sentiments.
Her challenge lasts until October 4 and this is my 2nd entry.
Thanks, my friend, for encouraging us to use those NBUS items we just had to have,
then forgot what we wanted to do with them!
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
