Script and Happy Accident

This weeks theme at Theme Thursday is Script/Writing! I knew what to do, make another 4x4 and finally use the script stamp I had laying around for a while, no idea where I got it from anymore though!

The picture is from Lisa's Altered Art, lace, flower and brad are from my stash!

Hermine had made a tutorial called "Happy Accident" guess you know what she ment by that! It was not suppose to work out like that, but..... it looked awesome, so..... happy accident!

The tutorial is not on her blog, but..... what you do is, crumble up some aluminum foil, glue it to your paper/cardstock, take a transparant sheet and an applicator and put some alcoholink colors on your sheet. Then put some blending solution on your applicator and go over it again.

Put some Diamond Glaze (Dimensional Magic by ModPodge gives the same results) on the aluminumfoil, put the transparent sheet on top of it, and....... the waiting begins!

After an hour you will start to see the changing of the colors, and after a whole day of waiting, (I know, that's long, especially if patients is NOT your middle name!) you'll see that the colors have seperated completely and it looks a lot different than when you started!

The colors I've used here were Lettuce, Butterscotch and Cranberry and as you can see, it looks more "orange" now! I love the effect of this, and am definately going to make more of these!!

*Edited* If you would like to see Hermines tutorial, just follow this link, it will direct you to her blog, where you can download and save it.

The picture used is also from Lisa's Altered Art!

Thanks for stopping by again and have a great day!

i love BOTH of these, actually. script and text backgrounds are a bit of a weakness for you know...and this one is FABULOUS! i loooooooooove the inky background as well!

(but yeah...that sounds like A LOT of waiting...maybe i could set it up before bedtime so i could sleep through most of the boring part??!?!) totally WORTH the effort when you see results like this! :)
