TECHNIQUE ALERT: Crinkle Transfer Technique


I'd like to welcome my lovely and very talented new blog buddies. It's great to have you here.

I will be on a holiday from Monday for a week so this is most likely my last post. I don't think I will have an online access during my holiday. I couldn't possibly leave without leaving a little something for you to get inspired by.. I have come up with a new fun technique that is super-easy and super-fun so you can play whilst I'm away ;)

I think the hardest part was to think of a name of this technique :) I think it is slightly similar to my Tie Dye Technique as it also using Dylusions and you end up with a pattern transfer. Only this one is easier! I'm going to explain and show you photos of the process. So here's my step by step...

1. take a plain copy paper & scrunch it up a few times and lay it down on your covered surface scrunched up but flat...

2. spray with colour no 1 Dylusions spray...

3. unravel a little & spray with a colour no 2 Dylusions spray...

4. unravel even more and spray with a third or like me just drip all over with a colour no 3 Dylusions spray...

5. spray your A4 cardstock (or your art journal page, a canvas or similar..) with a bit of water & lay down your coloured paper over your cardstock...

6. spray a little of the water over the back of it...

7. lift and dry both sheets...

You can use the coloured copy paper to also 'stamp' with over a wet cardstock...

... or repeat the steps above for a secondary print...

...and end up with a coloured copy paper... 

8. dry all sheets & use the cardstock for a card or any artsy background and the copy coloured paper for some flower embellishments, a collage or similar..

The above papers were made using the Cherry Pie & Pure Sunshine Dylusions spray. I also made more papers using my Calypso Teal, Midnight Blue & Dirty Martini Dylusions...

I stamped over both cardstocks and cut them down to a few ATCs. I rounded the corners to make them more attractive...

I picked a couple of each colour...

All four were sponged with Distress Inks, heat embossed numerous times using a clear embossing powder, some glitter added to each and a different rubber stamp left in to leave an imprint. In the end I rubbed in some mica powders in different colours to accentuate my imprinted image... this is what the end result is...

Mind it, it is hard to take photos of anything shiny so I tilted each card for you to see the colours and the background and then the imprinted image...

I hope you enjoyed this technique... It is so easy yet effective! I hope you like it and hope you give it a try. Please feel free to share your thoughts. I will enjoy reading your comments on Sunday and then upon my return. This is my very first set of ATCs so please be kind ;)

I'd like to enter these little ATCs into the following challenges:

I also made a card using this technique so if i get a bit of time I will post it before I leave otherwise it will have to wait in which case you have something to look forward to ;)

Ingrid xxx
