Cool & Creepy Technique

By mistake I came across something cool and creepy. I think I will name this new technique "Bleeding Images." Does that sound perfect for Halloween? What I did was quite simple and sad in a way. You see I am a lazy stamper and I don't always clean my stamps after each use. I had used the happy Halloween stamp from Dark and Dreary with a black marker and since I was next using it with black Staz On I didn't bother to clean the stamp. After I inked up with Staz On I stamped the image and then spritzed it with shimmer paint/alchohol and it bled. What? Why was Staz On bleeding, then I realized what I had done. I thought that you could do something cool with that so, I cleaned then stamp, inked up with both Rich Razzleberry and Cajun Craze and before stamping I inked up again with black Staz On. I stamped the image, let it dry a few seconds and then spritzed it to get the effect you see on my card. Do you like it? Try it for yourself and send me a link to your blog and I will post the link here.


  1. Very effective. Isn't it funny that some of the most interesting results and techniques come about by happy accident?
