By The Tide - One of My Favorites!!!

 Here is a card that was made at a technique class I hosted.  This technique requires a good set of lungs!  Take a piece of glossy cardstock (boo hoo, Stampin' Up! no longer carries it) and place a drop or two of a reinker on it.  Take a straw and start blowing!  Blow at an angle in different directions.  Next, add another color of reinker and continue.  Finally take a paper towel and wipe off the excess.  During the wiping process, you will fill any white areas that were not colored by the blown ink.
We actually used a larger piece of glossy cardstock and cut it down to size.  We stamped the fish two times on the scrap portion and cut them out for the card. 

Here's what you will need to duplicate this card:
Stamps:      By The Tide
Inks:           Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Black StazOn
Paper:       Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Whisper White, Glossy White
Other:       Fancy Fan folder, Midnight Muse ribbon

Forever Stampin',

  1. So glad to see you are back blogging. Love the background on this card. I need to try it but not sure I have good enough lungs. I remember doing this at a class I took with alcohol inks and feeling quire dizzy from the smell of the ink and the breathing :) Hope you are well. I started a blog a few months ago and am really trying to post once a week. Is a work in progress. Take care
