Good Morning and Happy Friday!
Today's card came together so quickly and I love the sense of movement it has overall....reminded me of fireworks!
I spotted my salad spinner and decided to get it out.
This card was an experiment as well, to see how the spray inks would work since I've only every done this technique using Alcohol inks before.
(to see that video, go HERE.)

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I got out my salad spinner (originally picked up at the Dollar Store and dedicated just to crafting) and some photo paper since I thought the ink would flow better on the shiny surface.
  • I cut the paper to fit into the bottom of the spinner, sprayed with some purple Dylusions Ink Spray, put the lid on and spun away.
  • I opened the lid and thought it needed a bit more so I added some sprays of blue Distress ink spray.
  • I set that aside to dry and stamped the sentiment with a shade of purple onto some white cardstock and die cut it out.
  • I cut the panel down to fit on the front of a 4 1/4 " square card base.
  • I pop dotted the sentiment over the background.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
