March Technique with By The Tide

Hello Everyone

Today's card features the technique I taught at class this month. This background is made with ink pads, Stampin' Sponges, water spritzer and plastic document holders.

Slit open your document holder. Sponge two or more colours of ink onto one side. Spritz with water, or not, Brayer outside, or not, put Whisper White or Glossy cardstock inside....and see what happens.

You can get all sorts of different effects - in fact no two images are the same.

Here we used the By The Tide stamp set to create an undersea image.

The greeting comes from the Blooming Marvelous Sale-A-Bration stamp set and is punched out using the Ticket Builder Punch.

Here is another version. See what I mean about the different effect you can get? Here I used Patterned Occasions, (the jeans), Ciao, Baby, (the #!), and Word Play, (the greeting).

I will be back on Sunday with another card made using this technique.

Love Elizabeth X
