Spring SpritzPosted: March 5, 2013
The air is feeling a bit spring like around here but with plenty of snow on the ground so I am not really in spring mode yet. This card, however is definitely a taste of spring with its fresh greens and white.
I have used this technique numerous times, usually in either a horizontal or vertical panel. I mask it first then emboss several of the floral images I’ve chosen in clear e.p. Then I stamp the image again in several shades of one colour, filling the space randomly. Next I sponge with the same inks usually leaving an area almost unsponged as this ends up looking like the source of light or some sunlight breaking through clouds. This time I decided to use a torn mask as I sponged to create the appearance of hills. Finally I spritzed some Tsukineko Fireworks spray in Bamboo Leaves which added some droplets and a shimmer. It was my first use of Fireworks spritzers and I think I sprayed a little more than just my card panel!
