Let me correct you!!

Well at least let me show you a fun way to use the trusty correction fluid! Now recently I bought a pack of correction pens etc from a bargain shop, you got 2 correction pens (great for white highlighting) and a traditional pot of the correction fluid for the princely sum of 99p! Now it was the pens I really wanted but I stashed the fluid in my "might come in handy" pile. And you guessed it.... It did!!
So in this digital and predictive text age where would you use such a product? In your stamping of course!!
The pigment in correction fluid is really strong so I thought it would be ideal for highlighting a subject, so I stamped a fun image, our aptly named Man Flu stamp on to some patterned paper in black archival ink. Then using the brush applicator painted a border of the white fluid all around the edge of the image, being careful but not worrying too much if I caught the image (as you can draw in the missing bits with a black fine liner).
And low and behold the image pops out of the page. Simple and quick. Also looks amazing in altered book pages etc, best patterned papers for it are not to busy and simply tonal colour schemes.

Have fun and happy crafting
