Irresistible - Neil Walker


Here we are again!
Where is this month going?
What happened to our heatwave......
scorching August, hottest on record......
So we are back to British Summertime at it's 
very best.....grey and showery.

This week we are featuring the fabulous 
Irresistible Sprays! 

For those of you who do not know what they are....
"Irresistible is an odorless, water-based texture spray
 that is offered in the same colors as the Memento ink
 family plus white and 4 metallic colors
 (gold, silver, copper and bronze).
 The colorants in  Irresistible are pigment-based 
so as to be highly fade resistant and to be 
very visible on dark as well as light cardstock.
 When dry, Irresistible  texture and dimension adds
 visual interest to any project".
Creates fine almost stipple effects when sprayed
 from greater distances and creates a more
 opaque coat when sprayed closer up.
 Adds fabulous texture and vibrant, fade-resistant
 color to a variety of surfaces.  Can be sprayed,
 brushed, dabbed or stamped. Colors are mixable
 for your own custom hues. Use with water for
 a unique watercolor effect or with dye/pigment
 inks for a high-impact resist effect.
Water-based, acid-free and archival.
Check them out here!
This is what Neil has made with them.... 

Neil says -
It's always interesting to see what new products do

 and how they differ from other products that are,
 on the surface, very similar.

Take these sprays. At first glance I thought that

 they would be pretty much similar to the Acrylic
 Misters, or Distress stain sprays.

So just to see what they were like I spritzed them

 onto some white card

What is interesting the the way these colours don't
 soak into the paper but sit on top and have a lovely
 texture to them. 
They also have a nice shine to them too.

I die cut and stamped some of the butterflies onto 
card and coloured with Distress Markers.

I mounted the white card onto blue card blanks
 and attached the butterflies.
A simple sentiment to finish and another couple
 of cards complete.

These are just so clean and simple.....
thank you Neil.  Beautiful!!

If you want to have ago, this is what 
you'll need -

Do give it a go, it looks amazing!
Ok, I'll be back tomorrow with another
project for you!

See you,

Jane x
