Uniko Studio - Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum revisited - Blog hop


Hello! 
This month, the Uniko Studio team is revisiting Pure Floarls: Chrysanthemum stamps & dies.


 

Lately, I've been really into painting, spritzing, and splattering. =D  I figured out a fun new technique to color images really fast. (I'm sure I'm not the first .) Fill a mini mister about half full with water, add several drops of ink from a (dye ink) reinker, shake it up, and spray!  Obviously, the more ink you add to your mister, the more vibrant your color will be.  
I started by die-cutting and stamping my flower and leaves.  I spritzed the center of the flower with an aqua ink, and spritzed the edges with fuchsia ink, then I inked the edges of the flower with a fuchsia pigment ink pad.  The leaves were even easier.  I spritzed them with a light-ish green ink, and then added a few drops of a darker green ink to the same mister and spritzed the leaves again, making sure not to cover the entire thing. Voila!  Quick, easy, and tons of fun. =)


That's all from me today!


How about some inspiration from the FABulous Design Team:
