Fifth Avenue Splat

Published by at 9:47 am under Cards,Stampin'

Here is one of the projects we made at my last technique class:

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Only Ovals
Paper: Regal Rose, Glossy White, Cameo Coral
Ink: Jet Black Stazon Pad, Basic Black Classic Ink Pad, Real Red Classic Ink Refill, Summer Sun Classic Ink Refill, Cameo Coral Classic Ink Refill
Accessories: Stampin Dimensionals, Top Note Sizzix Bigz Die, Wide Oval Punch, Crimper, 6×6 Page Protector, So Saffron 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon (Retired)
Technique: Ink Splat
Inspired by: www.stampingschool.com

To create the rose, take a clear folder (you can cut the edges off a page protector) and drip one drop of each color ink onto the inside center of the folder.

Spritz each drop with water.

Place the cardstock (3.5″ x 3.5″) glossy side down onto the ink, close the folder and flip over.

Using your index finger, smoosh the ink around until all the white is covered on the cardstock. You can continue smooshing the colors until you get the look you want.

Remove cardstock from the folder and set aside to dry. Stamp the rose image with Stazon ink and cut it out.

See my next post for the other project.
