ATSM Photo

Well over here in the UK, the clocks have been put forward, so I shall hopefully be in the land of nod when this post to announce the start of a brand new challenge at ATSM goes live!
Edited - The dog had other ideas!
This week it is our photo inspiration and for my card I've been pretty literal!


Here is this week's photo.




See what I mean?
My card is pretty CAS using the blue splashes and butterfly as my inspiration.
To start, I took a piece of MM paper and placed it in my MISTI. I stamped the STAMPlorations butterfly with Salty Ocean DI then gave it a generous spritz with my water mister. I wasn't too bothered about the splodging that resulted, in fact that's what I was aiming for. I inked it up again this time with Blueprint Sketch DI and repeated. With a straw I then blew across the puddling ink to create the fine lines and splashed some of both blue inks over the panel. When completely dry I stamped the same butterfly and sentiment from the new release from STAMPlorations with Blueprint Sketch DI. I was able to layer up the different images because my stamp was always in the same place thanks to my Misti. You could do it without it, but I guess you would get a slightly off edge effect unless you are A1 at lining up your stamp!
When dry I cut my panel down a little and adhered it to my base card.
Please stop by the rest of the team here for more fab inspiration.

  6. This is fabulous, Julie. I love the blown ink and I don't know why I don't think to do it. It and the splatters matches the photo perfectly.
