Case - Ink Blowing Technique.

Hi, last week I found a really cool technique on Printrest by Debbie at Debbie's Designs  that I just had to try, Ink Blowing. This is so fun, I'm sure my kids have done this at school in the past. Basically it's just using a straw to blow ink around the card to make amazing backgrounds.
As Debbie suggests I used watercolour paper putting a drop of each colour from the re-inker onto the paper then just blow with a straw. I did try using basic card but the ink soaks in very quickly making it hard to spread when you blow.
I've used Strawberry Slush and Wisteria Wonder ink refills, as you can see the ink dries really dark. Stamp set is Perfectly You (Hostess) in the new Holiday Catalogue cut out with Hearts a Flutter Frame Lits. 

This is really fun for little kids too.  Thank you Debbie for your inspiration. You can check out Debbie's Designs here.
