New technique trial

Over at NGS, Jan posted about a new technique that I just had to try. It is super easy and love the results. First rub dark colored Distress Inks on card stock ( I used tags as they are the perfect size for test-runs and if the test is good, you get a tag to use. Light colored inks don't work well with this technique. Then, ink up a stamp with watermark ink and then spray inked stamp lightly with water. Stamp onto prepared tag, lift stamp off quickly and blast with heat gun to dry. I think a bold stamp works best, and go easy on the water - a light spritz'll do it.

I love the blue/green colors on these - used Pine Needles and Denim inks.

For these, used Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade. Now need to get some other stuff going with these tags, but love this background technique and all the wonderful folks who share their great ideas.
