Spritzer Kit Techniques Using Some of Our Wonderful Images

Dye inks are a staple in any stamper's arsenal, and our dear Kathy K (Seaside Stampin' Ink) shows us here how to use them to make an easy, elegant card illustrating one of the many Spritzer techniques. Start by spraying a piece of glossy cardstock using a Mini Spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol and a few drops of an Espresso Adirondack reinker:

Wave the cardstock partially dry to separate the color:


Once it is completely dry, stamp H-1236 Santa, K-1230 Silent Night, D-1333 Believe, and the branch tips of G-1496 Tree onto the cardstock with an Espresso Adirondack Ink pad:


Then sponge around the edges with a Butterscotch Adirondack ink pad:


To add depth, layer with Adirondack Latte ink on top:


A Ginger ink pad adds an even richer look:


A bit of Espresso Ink provides the finishing touch:


And here are the beautiful results:

How simple is that? And the results are beautiful! Let us know if you try out this technique...we'd love to hear from you!

  5. What is the purpose of spritzing at the beginning with rubbing alcohol and dye? Is that supposed to enhance the "antiqued" look?
