Spritzing, Stains and Sketches

I did get to making some cards this afternoon after the marathon quilting session yesterday. I’ve had a go at combining a couple of challenges again – the ‘Less is More’ sketch has a square centrepiece and sentiment, with lots of white space recommended. The other challenge is a new one to me – a ‘Seriously Creative Challenge’, hosted by Creative Accents, to do something with stains or sprays. Here are my creations:

As you might guess, the results of my experiments can be somewhat variable! The sprays used are Dylusions Ink from Ranger in Black Marble and I used Bubblegum Pink on a Magenta stamp as a watercolour stamp ink. I can guarantee my fingers are stained, as is quite a lot of stuff on my desk – the overspray is a nightmare – until I decided to create a spray booth in a cardboard box. The sentiments are all printed in Archival Jet Black and are from the WOW! Everyday Sentiments clear stamp set.
