Tutorial with Goosebumps

 




HOW TO MAKE THIS CARD:
Stamp the dragonfly on white cardstock and on a piece of masking paper as well.
Cut out the mask.

                        Mask the dragonfly, and stamp the text with StazOn Timber Brown. 
 
Keep the stamped image masked and spray over it with the Goosebumps -  here I chose to spray not far above the cardstock, so I got big puddles.  Allow it to dry. 
  
 Sponge over it with Distress ink rusty hinge and bundled sage. Blend the colors a little bit. 
Splat some waterdrops over it. 
Allow it to dry. 

Color the dragonfly with some watercolor pencils....
                 Stamp the text twice more, don’t re-ink the second time. Also stamp the other text.
 


   
I did not like the big puddle on the right hand side, so I decided to change that. I started tearing, but wasn't satisfied either. So I grabbed a piece of paper, sponged it in Distress ink bundled sage and bundled sage. I attached it to the back of the cardstock. I still wasn't satisfied... so i decided to put some ehite acrylic paint over it (with a finger!), also the edge on the right hand side. As there is Distress ink underneath it, it got a bit yellowy.. 
I can live with it now..... 


 …but at this stage I decided I was going to do it differently next time I use Goosebumps !!! No big puddles for me anymore!! 
 
The result isn’t too bad, is it? 
 
 
What I also wanted to show you here, is that you have to keep going on, change things as you go - it adds interest to the card when you have to think about what to do when something hasn’t turned out the way you want it to be! 
DO NOT THROW IT AWAY!!
Try fixing it, or try to make your focal point differently....

  
 
 
 
TIPS FOR USING GOOSEBUMPS! 
* Drying time varies based on coverageand surface texture/type
*.GooseBumps dries clear; water resistant when dry
.* Distance from project when sprayed determines GooseBumps texture
(farther=finer, closer=concentrated)
*.Always rinse nozzle and flush sprayer with warm water immediately after each use for best spray results.
