Ink, Spray & Smash
by Faith Hofrichter
Create a unique and colorful background with re-inkers, water and glossy card stock.
- Two 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" pieces of glossy cardstock
- Spray bottle of water
- Dye reinkers (Sage Shadow, Apricot Appeal, Baja Breeze)
- Rubber gloves (Optional)
Glossy side up, drip several drops of the lightest color re-inker onto one piece glossy card stock.
Drip fewer drops of the medium color re-inker onto the same piece glossy card stock.
Drip just a few drops of the darkest color re-inker onto the same piece glossy card stock.
Spray both pieces of glossy card stock at least twice with water.
Working quickly, SMASH the unlinked piece onto the inked piece of glossy card stock and rub gently. This is where rubber gloves are needed.
Gently remove the top sheet by peeling it back off the bottom sheet.
Let dry. Here, it is curled because it is not dry.
As the glossy card stock dries, it will uncurl.
Cut and use as background.
