Try Something New with Finishing Spray

I am trying to play with different inks/techniques. For this card, I smeared Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks on my mat and then put a piece of white cardstock on top of it. A spritz of water helped it to spread around, too. Then once it had all dried, I sprayed a finishing spray on it to add the sparkle.

I thought the piece looked kind of like space so I chose an older Whipper Snapper alien stamp to complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Supplies Used

Stamps: Whipper Snapper Alien & Planet and Out of This World stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers

New Technique: Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks and AMuse Studio Stardust Finishing Spray 

Papers: Recollections Black and White and Stampin' UP! Taken with Teal CS

Embellishments: Michael's Rhinestones and White Blossom Stars
