Stampotique SDC106 - New Adventures


I must admit when I saw the theme this week my heart did sink a little bit, as I have always been a bit of a dabbler and I tend to try new things a lot, usually as soon I see them around so nothing immediately sprang to mind. So I sat at my desk for a while thinking (AKA watching the birds in the garden out the window).
My gaze fell upon my dylusion sprays and a pile off off-cuts of glossy photo paper, I have only ever used the sprays on absorbent paper so I thought I would give this a bash.
The ink is very different on this surface, it more or less drys as soon as it hits it, so there is very little blend, but one big bonus on my part was it no longer runs if you re-wet it and the colours stay as bright as they are in the bottle. I have used this for my heart cut outs. I also stamped my main image onto glossy paper and coloured it with the same dylusion sprays.

Color look nice and vibrant on the glossy, never though to try them on that paper. Great idea!

Stunning.... I love the fact you were day dreaming when you saw the Dylusions and had your genius idea. I love the speckles that you got from using the glossy paper. Nicely Done- Darling.xx
