Tim's July tag celebrated the 4th with its colors and content. I loved the technique he used and couldn't wait to try it out.
This was my first attempt at the technique. I have a few other tags I created using the technique which I will share tomorrow and I think I got a little better at my version of the technique with practice.
- Spritz surface of glossy cardstock with water. (I mis-read his instructions.)
- drip red pepper alcohol ink onto surface. Blow on with straw.
- Drip cloudy blue alcohol ink onto surface over red area and white. Blow with straw to spread.
- Drip white mixative onto surface blow. (This didn't work as it was too thick so I added a drop of alcohol blending solution and then blue. Hence the blended white area.)
Happy and safe 4th of July!
