ID: Spatter Backgrounds (Drawing Paper)
 5"w x 7"h

Created: April 19, 2009

This was done for a challenge. So I pulled out a cardboard box, and put some paper along each side and the bottom of the box. A sheet of 110# white cardstock, Biggie CP watercolor paper, Arches Text Wove, Arches 140# HP watercolor paper and Canson Drawing paper. I used Magic Colors, Bombay Inks, FW acrylic inks, Pearlescent acrylic inks, Lumiere and water. I took a fat brush and just dipped it into whatever color of ink, then just spattered in the box. It landed on all 5 pieces of paper (and I realized too late outside the box too). I continued doing this, misting occasionally with water until I got a good coverage. I then removed them from the box and continued distressing, rubber stamping with Adirondack Rainbow pads and Distress stamp pads, also used a thin eye dropper to dribble paint and inks and more misting. I also used a paper towel - flat - right on top of the wet paint to soak up excess moisture occasionally. I did this to all my backgrounds with the same piece of paper towel, which also got mounted to a piece of white cardstock (actually 2 pieces since the paper towel is 2 ply)


Spatter - Never Too Old

I cut a strip from the background paper and placed it on top of some purple cardstock, one which was put through a circle pattern crimper and the other I left plain. I added some yellow punched out circles both on top and under the background paper. Mounted all this to a bright green Bling cardstock then onto a white cardstock which I colored with Pan Pastels in a bright orange. Rubber stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "You are never too old") onto a green toned vellum and then used my circle cutter to cut a clean circle. Mounted it with Diamond glaze (a thin bead around the edge). Love the funkiness of this card.
