Hello Friends, Over at Just Us Girls Chris is our hostess and she asked us to use powdered Dyes on our card this week. I am somewhat of a late bloomer when it comes to new trends and techniques in the card making world, so I do not own any powdered dyes- Magnet Nuance, Brushos or Color Bursts…. and to be honest I had to google what in the heck they were. LOL With that being said, instead of running to the store to purchase something for this challenge, I decided and hoped the team wouldn’t mind I searched around the studio to see what I could come up with to get that fun sunburst effect like I saw on some of the samples on the net. I came across this bottle of Dylusions Ink Spray that of course I have had for EONS, and had to have for one reason or another. (You know you have some of those supplies too, that you aren’t sure why you purchased them!) I decided it just might do the trick! Hubby needed a thank you card for a co-worker at his school that helped in his Art class, and I wanted to make something special for her. I got out my favorite Paper Smooches Art set and some white embossing powder and a real paint brush and went to work. I heat embossed my paint tubes first on water color paper and then spritzed my paper with the ink spray. Then I took a paintbrush and flicked the ink to give it more a sunburst effect. Added some black splatters and I was satisfied. The rest is pretty much straight forward.
Please come on over to JUGS and check out the rest of the teams work …it’s super colorful! Nanc’
