Splatter Technique Background Using Fun Stampers Journey Silks - Day 3 of 3


It's been great sharing these Splatter Technique cards with you the last 3 days.  I hope that you will try this technique too.   Remember the directions are on my blog post August 22, 2016.

I honestly don't remember which Silks I used in this card.   I have them all and just starting putting drops of color down, then spritzing with water.   It just shows that having fun with color does usually give good results.

Did you notice the star like dots in a few spots?  That was where a bit of the silk was thicker, and while it was still wet I took a toothpick through it to create the look of a star.   If I had let it dry instead, it would of been a larger dot of color.   Was fun experimenting with it.

Our new Journey Brush Silver Card Stock CS-0135 is really nice.   I'm amazed at the shine to it.   Would be perfect for holiday cards.   It comes in packs of 10 sheets  8 1/2 x 11" for $12.95.  I used in it today's card for the sentiment.

Splatter Technique Background Using Fun Stampers Journey Silks - Day 1 of 3


A splatter technique background can be created using Fun Stampers Journey Silks, Re-Inkers, or Splashes.   It is so easy to do and really creates some interesting and unique backgrounds.   Fun Stampers Journey has 53 colors of re-inkers, 14 colors of Silks, and 17 colors of Splashes.   So many options, PLUS you can mix and match them too. 

1.  Put drops or splashes of color on an acetate clear sheet (like the stamp sets are attached to when you receive them). 
2.  Mist with water (our Media Mister TO-0121 is "PERFECT" for this step)
3.  Place card stock or Color Splash Sheet (JM-0076) over the top of the misted area.
     Now gently press down and smooth around the paper you are using.
4.  Gently lift up.  
5.  Want more color?   Just repeat the steps above with the same sheet of paper.
6.  Allow the paper to dry completely before using for your project.
NOTE:   Regular card stock will warp/curl more than the Color Splash Sheet will.  Color Splash Sheets are sheets made specifically for watercoloring.   After they are dry, I place them in between two of my large work pads I have and then add weigh to the top.   Works pretty well at flattening them out.   I have also found that using a bit more adhesive or White Liner Double Sided Tape helps in keeping the layer more flat too.

Make Lemonade Stamp Set from Fun Stampers Journey


Thought of my sister when I made this card.   Her favorite dessert was lemon meringue pie.

So many creative steps went into the making of this card.

First, I decided that I wanted to make my own background paper.   I took the lemon stamp from the Make Lemonade Stamp Set and randomly stamped the image on the Whip Cream Card Stock.

Next, I got out my Journey Color Splash Pencils and colored them in.   After coloring, I used a wet small tip brush (there is one included with the pencils) to blend and smooth out the coloring.

After allowing the background design to dry I attached the layers together using our Easy Glide Permanent Adhesive Runner.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the lemon design.   I stamped it on a piece of card stock that I had cut and used the "elements" to create a paper pierced look to it.    Dies:  Journey Rectangles.  It is a set of 12 ... 6 cutting die and 6 element dies.

The sentiment piece was "popped up" using Journey Foam Squares.   This adds depth and dimension to the card design.

I absolutely love the Slice-Fetti with its tiny pieces of fruit.   I used tweezers and Craft Glue to adhere them tot he card.    After gluing allow a few minutes to dry.
