I’ve got one final Swinking Technique to share with you today. This Simple yet stunning Christmas card uses “swinking” for the full background. You can see the other projects make with different “swinking” techniques by clicking on the links below.
This swinking technique is about as easy as it gets and each one turns out a bit different than the previous one. I used Orchic Oasis ink on a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock and I “swinked” (swiped ink) all over the the cardstock fully covering the whole paper. The next step is to spritz water on the cardstock and allow it to dry (or use the Heat Tool to dry it faster). Spritzing it creates beautiful speckles all over the ink, which in this case makes it resemble a night sky with stars. I also splattered some Wink of Stella on the cardstock. I did this by squeezing the Wink of Stella until the tip is full of ink, then tapping the tube on something hard, like the accross the lid of the Wink of Stella. This creates some “stars” that really sparkle and shine. I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment from Brightest Glow stamp set with Whisper White Craft ink and attached the background to a Thick Basic White card base. The card was finished off by attaching one of the Wonderful Snowflakes to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
