Yasutomo Niji- A Splash Ink giveaway

 Blown Ink!
...sounds interesting doesn't it?

I guess we have all tried this technique long before it was even called a technique! Haven't we all blown watercolors through a straw as kids. I used to do it all the time and really enjoyed coming up with new forms and shapes. Lately it's becoming extremely popular in abstract art . Sometime back I had tried this with watercolors and created a is a link. Today, I thought of trying this with Splash Inks.

I have a stepped out tutorial over at the Niji blog today..chek it out!

Also, I am having a giveaway and the prize is a set of Splash Inks!
..these acrylic inks come in a set of 4 and can be mixed to create a huge range of colors. Here is a link if you would like to know more about them.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!



  1. I have tried this with re-inkers it is so much fun. Are the splash inks thicker than a stamp pad re-inker.
    Love your art. Vicki C

  2. Love the vibrant colors ... they look like so much fun to create with.

  3. Lovely bright artwork - it looks like a lot of fun! I have liked both Facebook pages and am following you by email - I also have your blog on my favourites on my own blog sidebar. I'd love to win some Splash inks - I've just ordered a Gelli plate and see that they are compatable to use with those. Also I am attending evening classes for drawing and painting - we have mostly used watercolours so far, but we're going to be trying out different mediums this term. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

  4. This is such a cool technique. I'm just getting into mixed media, including water colouring and this will be so much fun. Thank you for your inspiration - I just love your cards.

  5. What a neat technique and a beautiful card!!

  6. I would LOVE to win these Nijinsky inks! What fun they would be! (And I already follow your wonderful blog!)

  7. Love the card as well as a chance to win it.
    Would love to know more about the inks.

  8. I'm betting you think we ALL could blow a tree like yours, but I have a stack of glossy paper on which I blew ink until I was blue in the face, and the ink acted like a 3 year old having a tantrum. But that was last year, and I'm going to try again, because last year you blew the best of all trees I've ever seen on any card, and I'm loving these flowers this year. I think going for flowers might be easier than the tree.

    Thanks for sharing your talent,

  9. I would love to win this. I saw them at a store and haven't made up my mind to buy them yet. If I won, then I can use them immediately. I love your example. I am still trying to master your watercoloring technique.

  10. wow, these are so beautiful! I would love to try this.

  11. Beautiful technique and colors too !

  12. WOW! This is a stunning piece of artwork. Ised to do this at school too, but it was MANY MANY years ago. I am amazed at the cards you produce, they are always very inspirational and give me lots of ideas.

    I hav'nt seen Splash Inks before, it would be great to get the chance to try them out. Mind you, you always make things look so easy, I can't imagine my efforts looking anything like yours.

    I too have your blog saved in my favourites. Will have to check out the sites on Facebook and getm some more inspiring ideas.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

    Love Sheila

  13. Hi Sanketi, liked both the FB pages and following you too :)
    saw your earlier posts too with splash colors and was inspired enough to buy a set of drawing inks locally available and experimenting with them, will share some multi-media works I did on my blog soon. I am using thick card stock taped over a newspaper ( thought it will absorb extra moisture) but my paper warps , anything you can suggest,
    and .......thanks for a chance to win these awesome inks !!!
