Deb, all your technique suggestions are GREAT! I copy them into a Word document, for future use, since, realistically, I know I won't just remember them. I agree with all others, you are so wonderful sharing your tips with us!

Thanks, Renee. I appreciate your very kind words!
I know what you mean about forgetting details, so I'm glad you have the instructions copied somewhere you can easily access them. Be sure to show us what you make! We're looking forward to seeing your art.

Yes, Audrey! Take a dye inkpad and rub it over glossy cardstock, then spritz with Lysol. Dark inks show off the bubbles better than light colors.

Roberta, I am working on examples for you tonight. As you know, glossy cardstock dries slowly so my samples aren't dry enough to put on the scanner bed yet. Hopefully I will be able to scan tomorrow before I go to work. I discovered my Memories Mists are clogging, so my samples use an Adirondack rainbow inkpad swiped across 2 pieces of glossy cardstock. I'll show the swiped glossy as the "before". On the other piece of glossy I immediately spritzed with Lysol (it will be my "after"). I wish they were dry. I want to show you NOW. LOL.

Audrey, you want to get ink on the glossy cardstock any way you can. I just thought of another way besides what I said above. Squirt some reinker on plastic wrap (with some water if you'd like, or not -- it depends on how strong you want the color), then swipe your cardstock through the reinker. Repeat to get your glossy cardstock fully inked. Now you are ready to spritz with the Lysol.

Have fun!

Default Lysol Technique

Here you go. (They are in plastic envelopes, thus the glare.)

Top: Adirondack Cabin Fever dye ink pad swiped on glossy cardstock

Below: same as above, but spritzed with Lysol

Tip: I dried these with the heat gun, but if you are patient and let them dry naturally you get more intense colors and greater texture.

Default Lysol Technique

This is the sample I made last night. I sprayed Memories Mists (it still worked even though the red was clogged) on glossy cardstock, then immediately sprayed the Lysol, then let it dry naturally -- I didn't use a heat tool to speed up the drying time. You can see the vibrant color from the ink as it pools in spots and saturates the cardstock, which doesn't seem to happen when you use the heat tool. Compare this sample to the sample above. This really is my preferred way to let these dry.

Looking forward to seeing what you create...

Have you tried non glossy cardstock with just running an ink pad across it then spraying it with Lysol?

Yes Roberta, I have tried this on matte cardstock. It is not very exciting, but it may be perfect for a different background. Give it a try.

The fun thing about dye inks is when you add a spray (liquid) to it, the ink breaks down into the colors used to make that particular ink. For example, my purple dye ink broke down into shades of purple, almost-pink and blue, and it was quite pretty. I have an ATC with a fairy in my gallery if you are visual and would like to see what I am trying to explain.

Distress inks don't do this. They stay true to the color. And that is cool too.
