Greenery with Splash Inks!

Color of the Year GREENERY,  I decided to make my own GREENERY with Splash inks available at!
I decided to take the ATC's I shared on Saturday and make them in to cards.  They needed a mat for that would look good with all the greens in the ATC. 

My ATC's before (above) and after (below).

To create the green I wanted I used 3 drops of blue Splash Ink and 5 or yellow Splash Ink.  Spritz watercolor paper with water, with a water brush lightly brush the paper with the color.  

On the first one while it was still wet I sprayed it with a  green mist.  The mist flowed and blended into the wet color.

The second I let dry before spraying with green mist.

After both were completely dry I sprayed a second time with green mist.

The two pieces of water color paper were cut in half and used to mat the ATCs from last Saturday posted on the Altered Pages blog HERE!

Mat with dark green paper as pictured above, adhere to the card base with double sided tape. 

I love the color I got with the Splash Inks

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
