Just Add Ink #312...Colour!

JAI #312

It's time for another fun Just Add Ink challenge and this week Patrice has given us a lovely colour combination to work with.

I must admit to being a little stumped at first working with all of those blues, but l eventually decided to revisit last weeks masking techniques and this was the result...I love the universe/moon effect.

Using the insert from some paper towel roll and my very unloved masking fluid, l randomly stamped and splattered over some Whisper White with the paper tube.
Once the masking fluid was completely dry, l then set about adding variations of the blues direct from my ink pad to a Teflon kraft sheet, spritzed it liberally with water and laid my whisper white on top and smooshed it around (do you like my technical I repeated this adding more colour and water to the Kraft sheet until l was happy with the look.
Once it was all completely dry, l used my fingers to remove the Masking fluid, added some Silver details and teeny tiny stars from the confetti border punch to finish it off.
The greeting is from the SAB set called Perfect Pairings.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is so cool Nikki! I love how bold and vibrant your smooshing technique has made the colours look - and the sparkly stars add glamour to the outer space feel too xx

  2. This background is so evocative Nikki - I can totally see the stars in this but also a foamy sea! Sounds like the whole process was a lot of fun! xxx
