December’s ‘How Many Do You Own?’ competition invites you to count your spray inks.
Why do we like our spray inks so much?
They look brilliant sprayed through stencils and onto stamps. They can cover chipboard with a simple press of the trigger and create great backgrounds. The inks can be bold splatters and torrential drips or a gentle mist. Haphazard dots regularly frequent our scrapbooking pages and ribbons and flowers can be coloured to match. The colours can be mixed or layered depending on the whether we dry the inks between applications. Some of the artier amongst us like to write and draw with the tube or dip in our paint brush. Resist patterns come up a treat when the ink is sprayed as the ink soaks into the paper but not the resist. The choice of colours and brands is endless and some companies like ‘October Afternoon’ have ranges with coordinating spray inks.
No wonder I have so many!
