Exploring Tim Holtz Colorwash Sprays.....Let's just say I think I'm wearing more product on my hands than actually ended up on my project! While I love the Colorwash Sprays, I knew there was a reason I don't use them that often. Even with replacement nozzles in my spray bottles, they still clog (note these are the old style bottles), anyone have a sure fire solution for keeping the spray nozzle clean?
It took me four tries to create the look I was after, as those darn bottles kept clogging.....Still didn't end up with full coverage on one side, but I'm not wasting anymore Matte card stock, I'm calling it quits, if I don't my hands will be stained for a week!
The fab image is from The Outpost Plate by Artistic Outpost, one of my many favorite images. It's stamped in Black Archival on Matte coated card stock. To add the color I spritzed a piece of acetate with Colorwash Sprays and smooshed onto my stamped panel. If you do this, it's best to leave your stamped panel a tad larger, as the inks pool at the edges, that way once try, you can cut off the ends that look all muddy.
