This month in camp we’re experimenting with some custom “potions.” On one card, we’re using the Stampin’ Spritzer and a stencil on the card front. I wanted to use More Mustard on So Saffron card stock, and I made several tries before I was pleased with the recipe. I kept track of each attempt (like a scientist!!!) until I liked this one: fill the barrel of the Spritzer 3/4 with rubbing alcohol and add 20 drops of re-inker.
It takes a bit of solution to get a good stencil effect, so I knew I’d be remixing it several times over the month. To simplify matters, I marked the barrel at the 3/4 mark. Now, how did I know where 3/4 was? I used my Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper. Lucky for me, the barrel measures 4″ long, so the 3/4 mark is at 3″. Simple!
BTW, you may see other recipes for the spritz solution — I use rubbing alcohol instead of water because the paper dries fairly quickly.
