Technique Tuesday by Judy

It all started with double sided designer paper.

Example #1
 Dry brush Liqutex iridescent pearlescent paint over the blue scrapbook paper.
 White gesso over the iridescent paint. This was done with a hit and miss technique with semi-dry brush of white gesso. Let dry.
 Apply Distress Gathered Twig ink over the gesso, with a foam ink blending tool, then spray with water and heat set to dry.
 Apply Distress Ripe Persimmon ink over the gathered twig inked piece with a foam ink blending tool, then spray with water and heat set to dry.
 Apply Distress Aged Mahogany ink with a foam ink blending tool, then spray with water and heat set to dry.
   I love the results of this and would never dream it all started as blue scrapbook paper if I hadn't done it myself.

Example #2

Example #3

In example #3; I sprayed Perfect Pearls Mist Heirloom Gold over example #2 tag and then heat set to dry.

The possibilities are endless what you can do with your stamping supplies!
Do you love to play with ink and paper?

      The Gesso I used came straight from the bottle and is in liquid form.
