TLC148 - Expressiomistic
TLC148 - Expressiomistic

Hi! I am your guest host for this week's challenge. I am posting this early since tomorrow is Christmas Eve and I'm sure everyone has a lot going on, including myself and I didn't want to be late posting! This will give you more time to play too!

This week's technique is one that my awesome SU demo showed me over the summer. It's called expressiomistic and it's a pretty simple technique with great results!

Here are the directions:
  • Ink stamp in a vibrant color
  • Spritz water many times on inked stamp (amount will vary from stamp to stamp, so make sure you test first)
  • Immediately stamp image and leave stmp on the card stock for a few seconds for the ink to run
  • Let dry
  • Stamp image again, using a dark ink, over the first image

Here are my examples...
Expressiomistic Christmas
Happy Day

Don't forget to put TLC148 in your keywords!
(Remember, if you're not a member of the Fan Club, you will have to wait until tomorrow morning to upload)

I hope everyone has a joyous holiday! Thanks for playing!

Well, it is actually Christmas Day here officially now (12.36am) and I still have two cards to make (which I'll be doing when I get up - along with a bit of tidying, prepping lunch, waking Maggie to see what Santa brought her - you know, I'll have heaps of time - LOL!!!!!) But I have an idea on how I can use this technique in one of the cards I need!!!!!

Thanks Riley - and Merry Christmas to you!!!!

MariLynn 12-24-2007 05:55 AM

This looks like a fun technique. I hope that I can work on it afterwork today.

Merry Christmas!

RJP111 12-24-2007 06:16 AM

Here's my submission. This was fun (after I figured out to hold the stamp at arm's length when misting it!)
Card for Baby Jesse

This card is for my soon-to-arrive great nephew. I missed the baby shower and ended up losing the card I made previously so this is the one I'm giving my niece today.

allee's 12-24-2007 06:23 AM

Thanks for the great techinque, Riley!! It was quick, easy, and fun!!

Here is mine:
I thought this was an interesting technique, but it also looks a little like you couldn't quite match it up....so I think this will have to be sent with either an explanation, or to one of you who "get it!". Merry Christmas to all. Anne.

Lorali 12-24-2007 06:52 AM

I can't wait to get home and try this! The cards you ladies have made so far are beautiful.

TreasureOiler 12-24-2007 07:10 AM

Looks like a great technique! Never even heard of it before....cool! Thanks for sharing!

I don't know if I'll be able to do it today, my husband has all the gifts laid out on the floor down by my stamp area. He's in wrapping mode now and I've been banned from the basement...lol

dancerriley 12-24-2007 07:21 AM

All the cards so far are so great!! i'm glad some of you have found time to do today's challenge... and I look forward to seeing those cards that have to wait until after Christmas! :)
