Simple Green and Stamping DO Mix!

Today I tried out the Technique Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. After daubing ink or using your brayer to apply ink to your glossy cardstock, you spritz it with Simple Green. Yeah, I know, strange but true. Look at how cool this Speckled Background turned out, though! The upper half is mostly daubed with Lavender Lace, with a bit on Orchid Opulence in some places. The lower half has mostly Mellow Moss with some Always Artichoke in some places. After you spray on the Simple Green, set it aside to dry. I think used my markers on my Inspired by Nature stamp and stamped over it. I really like the effect! Very unusual. As usual, all supplies are from Stampin' Up! So, want to try it? I'd love to see what you make with it! But you definitely want to use glossy cardstock. (Available on my website.)
