Does anyone remember that episode of Seinfeld? Hahahaha, sorry, I couldn’t resist! Well today I have 2 videos showing you some fabulous backgrounds you can make with dye reinkers (or liquid watercolors/food coloring) and various sponges. I was inspired to make this video when a youtube viewer asked for help using her Posh Impressions Rainbow Sponge, I bought some on clearance years ago and thought for sure they were discontinued but no! You can still get her sponges and inks, yay! But I did find DIY alternatives too, such as make up wedges and foam bath blocks. Warning, you will get inky doing this so wear gloves if you don’t want to walk around with blue hands for 2 days (don’t ask me how I know..)
After doing the first video I realized that I forgot a great technique, marbleizing! Rather than edit (I am lazy you see) I just uploaded is separately.
Not bad for sponges and ink eh? If you want to try something else fun and creative you can stamp and emboss in clear ink before sponging and your image will stay white and pop out! Have fun experimenting and til next time happy crafting!
