Hi! I’m today’s Guest Hostess for the Technique Lovers Challenge: Ink, Spray and Smash! Thank you for asking me, Beth!
A very LONG time ago, I came up with a very economical, and harmless way to make colorful background paper with glossy cardstock, re-inkers, and a spray bottle of water. I call this Spray, Ink & Smash! Here is a link to my blog with the full tutorial Here.
You can make some substitutions with this technique!*
*You can use White card stock or Printer PHOTO paper works!
*You can also use food dye!
*You can use just 2 sheets of Glossy to make more intense colors!
When you upload, please put TLC155 in the keyword section when you upload, and then post a link to your card here in this thread.
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us STAMPIN' !!

Happy, Happy Monday! Faith is the hostess - woo who! That's a fun way to start the week. Plus, my kids are going to school today after 4 1/2 days off from school. I can't wait to try this - hopefully later.
Thanks for a great challenge Faith. I'm off to go ink, spray and smash! I've wanted to do this for a long time and this challenge is getting me in gear. I love the look of this paper, it reminds me of my favorite batik fabrics!
Uh, oh, Faith!! I think you have created a monster and my husband will not be happy! I absolutely love how my paper turned out and I think this could become another obsession for me. I already love to hand dye fabric and create lots of messes with that....now the paper isn't safe in our house either!! Plus, I need to order more reinkers for options since I only have 6!!
I wish I didn't have to go to work today, so I could finish and create a card using my wonderful paper....I'll have to do that tonight once I'm home again. Why didn't I marry for money instead of love???
As much as I would love to try this, I don't think I will be able to play today. I'm having "women" surgery today to remove some precancerous cells. I don't think I will be feeling well enough to try. But I might try in a few days.
