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.

  3. Good idea to add some "blot" along with the fireworks.

  4. Perfect pairing! The blot looks great with the fireworks.

  5. Great card. The blots are perfect with fireworks!
