This is one of the SAB papers you get free with a $60.00 order.
It is so much more than meets the eye!
The glossy designs look great alone or they will "resist" ink, making them really fun for techniques. You'll find that this paper can be used with any style, from bold and bright to elegant and subtle.
Here are some techniques to try:
1. Spritz it! Use your spritzer by filling it about 2/3 of the way full with rubbing alcohol (70% Isopropyl Alcohol works great.) Add about 10 drops of re-inker. Close the spritzer and mix well. Then just spritz it on your paper holding it about 8 inches or so above your paper. (You may want to put it in a box to spritz so it doesn't get all over everything else! Use a paper towel to rub over the spritzed paper to remove the ink from the shiney images which "resist" the ink and remain white.
The more drops of re-inker that you add, the darker the paper will look.
2. Brayer ink on!
When you brayer ink on to the paper, you can create one uniform color all over the paper or you can create darker and lighter areas depending on the effect you are looking for. Just roll your brayer onto your ink pad and then roll it back and forth across the resist paper. Once again, rub the paper off with a paper towel to remove the ink from the resist areas.
You can brayer on several colors or create an Ombre effect!
3. Add ink with sponges and daubers!
You can also sponge the ink on using your sponges and daubers. You can use just one color or you can add several colors like the card shown above. Once you have the desired effect, rub the excess ink off the resist paper with a paper towel.
You can color on this paper with your Blendabilities as well. Just color directly on the paper, shading as desired. You will once again use the paper towel to rub across the top to remove the ink from the resist areas of the paper.
This paper is a must for everyone.
