Awhile back I mentioned that I had bought a bottle of Goosebumps texture spray.  I finally was able to play a little with it.  First here is a card I made using the Goosebumps spray.

The close up shows how the Goosebumps adds a texture to the card.

I used it as a resist.  I started with white card stock.  I added the Goosebumps spray to a sponge applicator and sponged it on to a script stamp and then stamped it onto the card stock.  I let it dry then sponged on scattered straw distress ink.  I then sponged Goosebumps spray onto Stampin Up Fresh Vintage stamp and stamped it onto the same paper.  I let it dry.  I then sponged Weathered Wood over all of it.  Lastly I sponged Goosebumps onto the same Fresh Vintage stamp and let it dry.  I then sponged Faded Jeans distress Ink over all.

  • Pros: Texture is cool-Like the overall effect
  • Retains color that it is stamped on
  • No heat setting needed
  • versatile – I did not try all the different things that can be done with this spray.
  • Cons: You have to clean the spray pump out immediately after use so it won’t clog. You must clean stamp immediately too although I did see somewhere that if you let it day it will peel off the stamp.  This is the thing I disliked the most. Seems like a waste of product to clear out the pump and an extra step.
  • It picks up any ink that is on your stamp- even when you think it is clean
  • another expense LOL

I had fun with this product.  I will have to do some more playing.  I think that a bigger contrast of colors and maybe a less intricate stamp might make a bigger impression.  hmm may just have to try this.

There are some good videos on YouTube for this product.  I watched this one by yourmemorieshere.com

Thanks for looking.  As always if you have any questions you can email me or leave a comment.
