Spritz blitz

Hello, Joanne here again with another couple of projects from me and Carol with the white board. We decided to use spritzed inks today.

Carol likes to subject her pieces to the full treatment so she had several goes at this one with her Glimmer Mists before getting a result she liked - the board seemed happy enough, despite the abuse!

This wavy edged arch is such a sophisticated shape and Carol's chosen the perfect stamps here. The rich colours and shimmer make me think of an expensive silk brocade fabric - gorgeous!

Carol's blogged a bit about the trials and tribulations of creating this piece here if you want more low down on what she subjected the board to!

I also chose one of the larger pieces today - the wavy tag. I turned it upside down and used the waves as a guide to punch a couple of hanging holes with a Crop-a-Dile though. I made "glimmer mist" with reinkers and Perfect Pearls in a mini mister and gave the board a good soaking. The fact that you're starting with a white surface means you get great colour vibrancy and depth.

Details of stamps and supplies are on my blog if anyone would like them.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you can join us again on Thursday when Carol will be here to show you some more white board projects.

Both are lovely projects and it's good that the white board can take a bit of battering and still look gorgeous xx
