You give Lisa goosebumps …..

and this is what she does with them.

Quoting Lisa ~~ “I had some fun with the goosebumps, 3 different techniques.

A while back Lori sent me a bottle of Goosebumps Texture spray to play with. I have to be honest I had never heard of this product and really didn’t know how to use it. Of course Lori told me a little about it, then I hit the web to learn more, and what I saw really caught my interest!
Not only does this spray create fabulous texture but it also acts as a resist when used with distress inks. Now you all know how much I love my distress inks, so anything that I can use with these for even more fun techniques has to be an awesome product!
Here I have three different cards to share with you, I used the Goosebumps a different way on each card to show you some of the fun techniques & looks you can get!”

Quoting Lisa ~~ “On this first card I really wanted to show you the texture you can get if you just give your paper a few sprays direct from the bottle. I pulled out a piece of smooth white cardstock, gave it a few sprays and let dry. Once it was dry I pulled out my distress inks in broken china and chipped sapphire to color the background. Remember I said that the Goosebumps acts as a resist, so the parts that were sprayed stayed white creating a cool splattered background!          Check out that texture, so cool!!! To finish off my card I added a couple of butterlies cut using the new Memory Box dies that Lori just brought in.”

Quoting Lisa ~~ “For my second card I used a wood grain stencil laid it over kraft cardstock then sprayed a good coat of the Goosebumps. Once the paper was dry I pulled out my vintage photo distress inks and applied it overtop to darken the areas that had been covered by the stencil. After you ink up the paper use a damp paper towel swiping it lightly over the parts coated in Goosebumps to remove any of the ink sitting on top, this really brings out the contrast!
Now you have the perfect woodgrain background for all your cute little creatures!”

Quoting Lisa ~~ “Finally on my third card I used a stamping technique, this one is my favorite for sure!! Again I started with a smooth piece of white cardstock, but I didn’t want my image to be white so I used some worn lipstick and stormy sky distress ink to color the paper. Once finished this step I was ready to stamp. Take either a makeup sponge, or a blending foam and give it a spray or two of Goosebumps, you want enough so that your sponge is fairly wet. Using the sponge pounce the goosebumps on your stamp covering the entire image, then stamp.
**Very important, make sure you wash your stamp right away with some soap and water, you do not want the Goosebumps to dry on your stamp.
Once your stamped image is dry (which it should be by the time you’re done cleaning your stamp), add another layer of distress ink in a contrasting color, I used chipped saphire. I reapeated this step a second time with the butterfly stamp, then added a layer of vintage photo distress ink.

I am totally hooked on Goosebumps, thank you Lori for introducing me to this new and totally awesome product!!”
