Tutorial #2 from Teresa Abajo

Hi there folks! Teresa back again with another card using the Sweetmoves stamp from Stampotique:

For this card I used Dylusions ink sprays to make my background. This is such a simple technique - here's how I did it:

Remove the spray component from the bottle, and use the siphon tube to draw a circle onto a clean craft mat. Go round and round and round, spreading the ink as much as possible:

A little bit of ink goes a long long way! The more ink you use, the less defined the little droplets will be. When you're satisfied with your circle, place a piece of cardstock over it to pick it up:

 and voilĂ ! An ink droplet circle:

I repeated the process with another couple of coordinating colours  (I used Pure Sunshine, Fresh Lime, and Funky Fuschia). I made sure each colour was dry before I added the next:

Then I stamped Sweetmoves over the top using a waterproof ink (Jet Black Archival) and coloured the image in with  Copic markers:

You can find an awesome range of Stampotique stamps in stock here.

Thanks for looking - hope you've been inspired to create some art today!
