I'm so glad you stopped by! I have drinkie-poos for everyone today and you can even take a turn at the Inkspray Nozzle!
There is a great photo inspiration challenge over at TIME OUT Challenges that is almost ending. When Hammy and I saw it, we gasped in unisonhood and knew we'd have to play along, thusly:
What we have is a martini glass stamp by an out-of-business (OOB) company. After stamping, I took my night of navy marker and colored the blue lines. A little Modpodge and we've got the appearance of vodka. The life preserver is from Technique Tuesday's "R&R" set and the sediment is from Your Next Stamp.
But then I noticed that Less Is More, another favorite challenge of mine, is having a Lucky Dip event with the theme of "Sprays and Mists." Now I'm what you might call a spray novice. But, well, shucks, if I add some watercolor red spray that was a gift from Loll, I can play along there, too! How hard can it be? Said the hamster.
Placing my perfectly clean and crisp white card in a box outside and behind the Playhouse, I aimed the spray bottle and shot. Just the once. Apparently, I hit the life preserver because now my card looks like it has life preserver juice all over it!
Really, is that what you spray artists do? Cuz, wow, you know, you could really mess up a perfectly good card if a big blotch of splat went awe rye. I'm not prezackly loving where my splatters splatted.
Do you spray your blank white card first until you get great splotches and splatters and then stamp and so on, so that you don't ruin all that work? Yeah, that's prolly what I was sposed to do. Said me, shooting a withering look at the hamster.
I tried to make him get in the spray box, but he wasn't born yesterday.
Since today is the first day of September (eek!), it is time for the reveal of the card I made for the August 2015 Card Chain Challenge at Society of Stampaholics:
