Stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and then colored with my new Prismacolor pencils, then blended with my paper stumps and odorless mineral spirits. For the mineral spirits..I put the liquid in a baby food jar that is labeled accordingly and layered tissues in the jar all the way to the top and then the liquid will wick immediately into your stump. I place the lid on tight when not in use. Just add more mineral spirits as needed.
Layers are made with Stampin' Up! cardstock.
This was so much fun and I do love this technique...I will be using this alot.

This is really soft, subtle and beautiful! Wonderful job!
If the tissues in your jar start to break down from the liquid spirits, trim a yellow sponge to fit into your jar. Because it's not made from paper fiber, it won't break down in liquid like tissue will. Just a suggestion. :)
