Ink Spray Backgrounds

Hey friends! Welcome back!

I have some more inspiration to share using the Dream Big release from Simon Says Stamp.

Today I’m featuring the Geo Aria Background stamp.

I was inspired by my friend Dilay to dig out my sprays that are starting to collect dust in my drawer.

I am using Neenah Solar white 110 lb cardstock but water color paper would probably be better. In a spray box, I lightly spritzed the cardstock with Calypso Teal, Bubblegum Pink and Pure Sunshine Dylusions Ink Spray. The overlap of the colors will create those missing colors of the rainbow.

After the background is dry, I’m going to stamp the Geo Aria background using Versafine Ink.

I can then trim the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and add to a white card base using foam tape.

For my sentiment, I’m using the Big and Bold stamp and die set. I stamped the sentiment in embossing ink and heat embossed with Gilded embossing powder.

I’ll finish off the card with some clear quartz sequins from Gina K Designs.

Sprays are such a fun and quick way to create backgrounds. I think sometimes the trick to them is NOT spray the entire background. That requires a little self control which I seem to lack sometimes lol.

Have a fabulous day!
