I hope you have enjoyed this week of projects featuring Memory Box and Imagine Crafts products. I am a huge fan of Imagine Crafts products, especially VersaFine ink pads. It is my "go to" inkpad.
For my card today, I wanted to show you their Fireworks sprays. Fireworks are water-based and acid free, coordinate with Memento Inks, and add the most amazing shimmer to your projects. I decided to do something a little bit different than using them as sprays. Instead, I sprayed them onto a palette so that I could use them as watercolor paints. I used Summer Sky, Bahama Blue, and Paris Dusk:
I used some 140Lb watercolor paper and wet it with a paint brush and water:
I added all three colors to the card. I ended up with three distinct bands of color:
I added a bit more water between the colors to blend them, and I also mixed the colors with each other on the palette so that I would have some transition between the three colors:
It is always hard to take picture of metallic or shimmery items, but I am going to try. When the Firework Sprays dry, they have a lovely sheen to them that looks opalescent to me. It is truly gorgeous:
And the bottom of the card...
As I mentioned, the sprays coordinate with the Memento inkpads, so I used my Paris Dusk Memento pad to coordinate with the Paris Dusk spray I used at the top of the card.
