done on Arches Text Wove

ID: Spatter Backgrounds (Text Wove)
 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 - Miss U

I used a jumbo Rollagraph wheel to put the crackle effect on the paper. Part of it I embossed with Queen's Gold and the other part I used Marcasite (a black tone).  Punched it out with an Fiskar's Squeeze Punch "Too Hip to be Square". Mounted them to a deep blue that I put through my Cuttlebug and used the "Mesh" embossing folder. Mounted these to a bright yellow cardstock then onto a deep green double sided cardstock. Used the mini Grungeboard letters and painted them with various colors of Ranger's crackle paint, when dry, edged them with a dark blue Zig marker. Added the heart charm (Quietfire Design) using a fishing attachment.
