AIR - All Purpose Inks Splatter technique

Hello! I am excited to share my first IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko AIR post with you today- AND I participated in Tiff's fun Mix-ability challenge over at SCS!  Her challenge was to get splatter-ific.
And IMAGINE Crafts/Tsuiknekos All Purpose Inks are just perfect for it!

Spray's seem to be everywhere now- and come in every color.  I used my All Purpose Inks to create the splatter background following Tiff's suggestion of using a paintbrush. 

If you haven't played with the API (all purpose inks) before, they are pretty dang fun!  Here I have Poppy Red, Tangelo, & Peony Purple.  I loaded my well with a few drops of water and a few drops of ink.  (I literally just scooped was in the lid into the well.)  I then swished my paintbrush around in it and flicked it onto my card front until I liked the final result.  You can also use them with a paintbrush to color in images as well.  *Note- cover your work area when splattering, it can get a bit messy. but in a good way! ;)

To finish off my card, I chose a few ink colors that would complement the purple/red/orange combo I already committed to! ;)  I stamped the flower base in Pear Tart, and the flowers in Grape Jelly Memento inks.  I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  To finish it off, I added a ribbon tab, and some washi tape on the right side.

There's still time to play along in Tiff's challenge- and a new Mix-Ability happens next week! :)
