Tutorial with Spectrum Noir & Gina K Designs ~ Part 3

Last week, I shared two Spectrum Noir background techniques with you ~ one with ink refills and one with the markers.  Today I have one more to share with the ink refills and a pre-stamped image from the Gina K Designs set called Ship to Shore.   Here's the finished projects... scroll down for the step-by-step picture tutorial.

I gathered my supplies - 3 shades of blue ink refills (BT5, BT9, TB9), a bottle of Spectrum Noir Blender Solution, an applicator with felt and a piece of glossy cardstock with my image and sentiment stamped on it.  I stamped them in white pigment ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

Next, I started with my lightest color (BT5) and using the dropper that comes with the bottle, I squirted droplets of ink all over the glossy cardstock.

Then I added the droplets of the next two colors (BT9, TB9).  Finally, I took my applicator (with Blender Solution on it) and dabbed it all over the glossy cardstock.

Just keep dabbing it until you get the look you want.  If you have too much ink, put a new piece of white felt on your applicator with more blender solution and then dab it some more.  I also added some Tim Holtz Silver Mixative and dabbed that around for a bit of sheen.

Note: Make sure you have your work surface covered with something other than paper (the ink will go through).  Also, I like to wear rubber gloves & an apron, since this process can be a little messy.
