Little Red Wagon Challenge #286 ~ Spots, Dots, Blots!

Hey there and yep, it is that time of the week again, Wednesday and a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  This week our hostess is Joanne and she is seeing SPOTS, DOTS AND BLOTS! She wants to see some kind of spots or dots or blots on your project.

For those of you that are tracking with me, it is 4 more sleeps until I see my son, daughter-in-law and two amazing grandchildren.  I am pretty stoked if I do say so myself....LOL!!!

Okay, on to the subject at hand.  I have been having fun trying out different media on both canvas and paper in the last while.  This card I used a stencil, Goosebump texture spray and Tim Holtz mini distress inks to create my "blots".  It was both fun and messy at the same time.  Anyone who knows me well knows that messy and I don't get along but I am getting better at it.  After all, cleaning up works too!  First you inked up one colour of a splat (I did the red first), and then used a make up sponge without moving the stencil to cover over the ink with the Goosebump spray.  This created a resist and I moved the stencil around repeating it with all 4 colours.  I then sprayed the Goosebump spray and inked with black to create the background.  I did wipe over each colour with a damp cloth to take out any residue black that may have stuck to make the colours more vibrant and the white spots whiter instead of grey.
