Glossy Spritz Technique

 Hello from design team member, Heidi. I hope you are doing well!

I don’t know if this easy background technique already has a name, it doesn’t need one, but I called it Glossy Spritz, for the sake of the blog title.  

Basically, I brayered dye ink on glossy paper. 
You could add it direct-to-paper if you want.  
Next, I spritzed it with water and used my heat gun to dry. 
I repeated the process, as needed, to get an interesting look. 
I think it looks best with multiple colors of ink, but it looks really neat regardless, more dramatic than with regular cardstock.

For each card, I decided to stamp right over top of the background with Archival Black ink.  I just chose very different stamps for each card based on how the background was “feeling” to me.  

Honesty, the biggest trick to making this card is waiting for the black ink to dry so you don’t smudge it.  I hope you might want to try it today as it is so fun and easy.

Here are the stamps I used for these cards:

Animals from MS110 Full Plate in the I Brake for Stamps shop.

Sentiment from Inspirational Phrases in the I Brake for Stamps shop.
