I am always trying to think of new ways to use my bisters. My goal is always to maintain the color saturation of each color. I started by scattering bisters on my non-stick kraft sheet. I placed a stencil over the top of the sprinkled bisters and then misted the entire area. From this process, I was able to pull two nicely (and uniquely) colored background pieces. Neither has a distinct stencil design, but I'm good with it. The stencil simply helped to create an interesting pattern in the ink flow vs. a specific design.
For the piece above, I added a final spray of water to blend the inks a bit more. When it was thoroughly dry, I stamped Floral Silhouette Bouquet several times with Ranger Archival Ink. This is my favorite black ink because of the intensity of the black image it provides.
To finish things off, I added some pearl accents, washi tape, baker's twine and a sentiment. You'll find the sentiment, Thanks So Much, here. There's lots more good stuff like this over in the store--I recommend just strolling around! Have fun and be awesome! TTFN--Jane
