Half and Half – The Bold and the Mute-iful Technique with Kerry

Hello!! Its Kerry here today.

Today’s project is kinda a 3 in one, you can use the technique for a super bright and bold background, or mute that background down to get some pretty pastel tones, or both! I will be using my Lindy’s Sprays today, but as usual, you can use your magicals or squirts for this if you prefer!

Lets begin….95016233_677160596433203_7789422738942197760_n (1)

I have selected my sprays, today I am using Freaky Frankenlime, Sandra Dee Sepia, Crows Nest Copper and Hydrangea Blue, and a piece of regular white cardstock.

I have spritzed the card quite heavily with water and then added my blue and green, allowed them to mingle a little on the card and then dried the card off a bit.

After the card was mostly dry, I have added some big droplets of water and allowed them to sit for a few seconds, this will reactivate the color and then I removed the droplets with a paper towel and dried the card thoroughly. I just love this textured background look.

Next, I have taken a piece of vellum, (not all vellum is created equally so you might want to try this on a small scrap before you use a full piece). I have stamped some script in permanent ink and added some splashes of the Sandra Dee Sepia and Crows Nest Copper and dried them thoroughly.

Then its time to assemble the card. Simply layer the vellum over your background, I have chosen to sew my pieces together. I have added and black ‘Whichcraft’ chipboard botanical silhouette to the card to finish off.

Its a really simple combination…

The copper splashes on the vellum really catch the light.

The water splashes add a lot of interest to the background too.

and the vellum mutes that super bright background if you would like a more ‘toned down’ look.

These would make great cards, ATC’s or even bookmarks.

PS.. for those who haven’t seen it The Bold and the Beautiful is a day time soap opera on TV in Australia and America, it’s where I got the idea for the name of this technique from 🙂
