Life Is Like A Roller Coaster

I tried a fun technique today, called Spattered Ombre.  It's a fun, easy background technique, by Pat Huntoon.  I used it for the background of this card.....

The stamps are Beautiful Ride and Like A Roller Coaster by Technique Junkies.  I stamped the roller coaster onto a piece of white card stock, and used an Our Daily Bread Designs stitched circle die to cut it out.  I used my Clarity stencil brush to brush on distress inks in green and blue, then added some Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen to the roller coaster.  It really shimmers and sparkles in real life.

For the background, I used Pat's Spattered Ombre watercolor technique.  I watercolored in ombre fashion a piece of watercolor paper, using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.  While still wet, I dropped spatters of rubbing alcohol onto the watercolor.  That created those fabulous white spots.  I added the Life is a beautiful ride verse, repeating it using my Misty to get it evenly spaced and straight.  You can see the technique tutorial for the Spattered Ombre background HERE.  
It's a fun technique, and I will definitely be making more of these backgrounds in different colors!  

There is a new challenge on the Technique Junkies blog HERE to use this technique.  You can enter anytime before February 12th for a chance to win a $25 store credit towards TJ stamps!
