Hmmm...what is a "Bit of Blot"?
Good question!

The steps are listed above but basically it's playing with ink and water to create a unique look.
Here's my take on this technique.

I used the "blot" technique to create the red splotchy looking background. Then I randomly stamped fireworks around the splotchy paper to create a unique background paper to create this card for Memorial day. The tags were cut with my Cricut using the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.

I played around with other colors and paper. Different looks were achieved on each try. Playing with the ink, amount of water and ink creates many variations using this technique. I encourage you to give this a try if you are looking for an eclectic look in your projects.
