With Heartfelt Sympathy

The Just Us Girls challenge this week is a technique challenge, Ink Spray Smash.  You put ink on a glossy piece of card stock and then spray it with water and "smash" two pieces of paper together.  I was really surprised at how quickly the ink dried on the glossy paper.  It didn't seem logical to me.  Not sure why I picked the colors I did for the background ink, but I thought it would be a good color for my PTI tree stamps.  I embossed the trees and the sentiment so that the stood out a little more.  A clean and simple sympathy card popped up for a little extra dimension.

It's hump day! Happy Wednesday!

Ingredients:  PTI Kraft Paper and Twine; SU Glossy White Paper; PTI Stamps; Ranger Distress Ink:  Broken China and Peeled Paint

  1. Just lovely - I like the somewhat monochromatic look you achieved. CAS was certainly appropriate with this design. Thanks for getting inky (literally) with Just Us Girls this week. :-)

  4. I love your ink spray smash! It turns out so cute, but it's hard to think of the end picture when you are first designing with this technique I feel like...Yours turned out so pretty and serene though! Awesome job!!
