I LOVE Fun Stampers Journey Splashes. They come in awesome colors, really cute spray bottles, and are ready to use. No mixing, just point and spray.
For my classes and clubs during the month of March, after I already had my projects prepped and ready to go, I started playing with the Fun Stampers Journey Splashes. I absolutely fell in LOVE with them. NO WAY could I wait an entire month to share the splashes with all of my stamping buddies. So, I had a brain storm of an idea. At the last minute, I set up a spray box, stencils, and splashes and gave each stamper a quarter sheet of whip cream card stock. No design, no directions, they just chose their splash colors and a stencil, pointed, and sprayed. Everyone’s card was completely different,and even though the splashes dry very quickly that is all we did with them in March.
But not me!!! I continued to play and today I posted one of the cards I made on The Amazing Bloomers FB page. Everyone was so kind with their comments ( which I appreciate so much), and Rhonda Blythe (I think) even suggested a tutorial. At first I poo pooed the idea but after thinking about it I thought, well why not?
Remember, this will be my very first tutorial ever, so please be kind. 🙂 but feel free to comment.
This is a picture of the finished card.
Here are the supplies I used:
Splashes: IP-0076 Cool Pool , IP-0083 Watermelon Fusion, IP-0094 Cranberry Bliss Silks, JM-0073 Modeling Paste,To-0089 Spatula, JM-0007 Starbust Lines stencil, SS-0072 Sentimental Prints, AT-0104 Sweet Chirp stamp set. This set is 30% off this month because it is retiring in June……..and don’t forget a spray box for the Splashes. CardStock: Rock Candy, Cool Pool
Soooooooooo, Here goes:
First: Spray the Splashes directly on the CS. As much or as little as you like. I used Cool Pool and Watermelon Fusion Splashes. Love those two colors!!!
Next, Use washi tape to secure the stencil to the sprayed CS. Apply Modeling Paste to parts of the stencil but leave the center of the CS free of Modeling Paste for stamping.
******Waiting on the Modeling Paste to dry is the hardest thing about this card. 🙂 It doesn’t take long to dry but if you are like me…not very patient, you can use a heat gun to hurry things up. tip: heat from the back side of the CS so that you don’t discolor the Modeling Paste. After it dries, you may leave it white or gently lay color on it with a dauber or sponge.
Next: Stamp the Sweet Chirps stamp set on the diagonal. I stamped twice with Rock Candy, so that the image went from top to bottom.
On a separate sheet of CS, I stamped the birds in Watermelon Fusion ink, fussy cut them with our AMAZING Pro Shears, and then glued them on top of the stamped Rock Candy birds.
Another really fun FSJ product are the Silks. They have a metallic sheen to them and you just tap the applicator brush to leave drops of the silk. They are splatters of bright metallic color…LOVE the look! I used the Cranberry Bliss Silk after I stamped the Rock Candy birds but before I added the Watermelon Fusion birds.
….and last, I used a piece of ribbon, stamped a sentiment from the Sentimental Prints stamp set on a piece of scrap CS, adhered that to the card and added a Bezel Dot (loved that BOGO promotion).
That’s it! Very quick and simple. The really cool thing about this project is that everyone’s creation will be different!!!
