March Basic Training-Inky Backgrounds

A couple of weeks ago Lanette and I took a workshop with Dyan Reavley at Scrappy Chic, our local scrapbook store.

I learned so much and wanted to share a bit with you.

I inked a couple of tags with some 'cool' colors from Dyan's Dylusions Ink Sprays; Fresh Lime, Vibrant Turquoise and London Blue.
You will need 2 tags, these are no.10, stencil and spray bottle with water.

 Dyan always uses three colors.

 Spray each color in 2 places on one of the tags, make sure you get good coverage.

Put the other tag on top and press down evenly.  You can use a roll of paper towels to roll across the tags.

 Pull the tags apart and mop up excess ink.

Let the ink dry to the touch.

Lay the two tags side by side, place your stencil over one of the tags and mist water over entire tag.

Lift the stencicl and flip over to the next tag, press down by rolling the paper towel roll over the top.

Then roll the paper towel roll over both tags.

Viola!!!  This is one of the awesome techniques Dyan taught and you can find more in her new book, Distinctly Dylusional.  I highly recommend it if you link playing with ink!!

Tune in sometime in the next week or so and I will show you what I did with these awesome tags.

Thanks for sharing a few minutes with us and don't forget to check out our March drill, steampunk Funk that is going on right now.
