Artistic Splatter Technique

Technique Time!  Today's technique is called "artistic splatters" (trying to be a bit more creative on the names).  Only a few supplies are needed for the technique itself ... multipurpose glue, water filled spritzer, silicone mat, old paint brush and embossing powder with heat tool.

Here is the video with instructions.  You might want to watch to the end, for there are lots of other tips and tricks after the main technique is shown (along with lots of bloopers today, sorry about that).

Spritzed Silicone Ink Pad

Technique Time!   This technique was actually a bit of an experiment.  First, I tried using watercolor paper that was spritzed with water and stamped directly onto the wet watercolor paper.  The image became too blurred.  Second, I tried inking the stamp and spritzing the water directly only the stamp and stamping onto a dry piece of cardstock.  It also didn't have the desired effect.  Last I tried inking the stamp and spritzing the silicone pad with water (that happened to be sitting on my desk).  That was the winner.

Here is a video for a better explanation and demonstration:
