Just Because Funky Spirals are fun !

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well,  It's a beautiful sunny day here in Ontario, Canada.

I have another design to show you using one of Designs by Ryn's newest stamps.   I had a lot of fun with the background :)




I started with a large sheet of mixed media paper and sprayed Midnight and Cheery Pie Dylusions spray inks.  I misted with water, blended a little, let it dry and then mopped up some ink splats from the craft sheet.     I used half of the background as a double mat.

On the other half of the background, I stamped with Ryn's Sea Bubbles Set with white ink which is a little difficult to see in the photo.   I also used TCW Mini Star Fall stencil with Salty Ocean Distress Ink and white Acrylic Paint.  Next I stamped the largest Spiral from Ryn's new Spiral Set with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.

Next I stamped the medium Spirals with black ink and embossed the smallest Spiral around the background with silver and purple glitter embossing powders.    I bleached the colour from the black spirals, added a little Dylusions Inks, Luminate Smooch Ink and then Glossy Accents over top.

"Just Because" is from a 2009 Basic Grey mini stamp set.   I think this card would work well for a young or older person's celebration.



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !
Shirley

  3. This is stunning Shriley. I love the delicate look of the sea bubbles stamped in white (it's one of my favorites), also the gorgeous colours you've used. My wish list for the new stamps has started and both of the new ones you've used are on it. Glad you're having fine weather today.
