OWH July 4th VCMP Challenge #2


Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card Making Party for the 4th of July.

The second challenge is hosted by Michelle at Caffeine & Stamps – make a Thank You card with a bonus points if you make your own fireworks using spray inks.

Well, I don’t have any spray inks and I don’t want to buy any spray inks because I don’t need to find another product that I MUST HAVE IN ALL THE COLORS BECAUSE REASONS… Ahem. Excuse me. It’s OK, everything is fine.

Anyway, because I don’t have any spray inks, I decided to use the technique that Tim Holtz featured in his 12 months of tags – June. The card below is my second attempt because I got very into putting red and blue all over the stencil  for the first card and then ended up with a lovely purple and white design… It might make an appearance on another post.

GP White, Recollections Black & brads, Tim Holtz stars stencil, Distress Inks in Barn Door & Faded jeans, Doodlebug Thanks.

  1. I know what you mean about needing all the colors! You can make your own spray inks if you want pretty easily with reinkers or gelatos and a mister. I’m SO counting the technique you used as bonus points! LOVE this card, and SO going to try it!
