Removing Raindrops

Day 8 of AEDM!  I picked up some Radiant Rain inks at Art is You last month.  Here’s what I like: they are vibrant, have some sparkle, and react with water.  So when I had a gesso’d page covered with blue Radiant Rain I decided to use my raindrop stencil from Julie Balzer.  I put the stencil down and sprayed with water.  Then rolled a paper towel over it to remove the water and some of the ink.  It gave the drops a great texture.

    OK, this is why I like dropping in on your blog so often! =D What a great idea!! (I’ll bet this would work with Distress Stains and Inks too. I’m totally trying that today.) Gorgeous effect!
