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.
