It's a cold, windy, wet day here in the midwest so I thought I'd make my own sunshine! I had lots of fun making this distressed card! I love how a simple die cut from white card stock just pops on a colored background. Want to make one of your own?
I cut the Heart Pattern Plate from watercolor paper. Next I inked it up with distress inks in pastel colors (Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavender.
If you're happy with the inky blending you can stop here but I thought I'd kick it up a notch (LOL!).
I splashed the background with water, let the distress ink soften and blotted up the water with a paper napkin.
I trimmed this panel slightly smaller than my A2 card base and noticed I was starting to loose some of the pieces (you can see a missing piece above)
I should have added a piece of tape to the back to hold everything in place before I started cutting. Now you can do better than me when you try this!
I adhered the Massa Leaf Frame to the front of the card inserting the die cut window in place, and added some Stitched Bloom Trio Flowers.
I double cut the Scribble Hello sentiment from gold glitter and gold foil papers and layered them so you would see just a silhouette of sparkle.
The finishing touch was a sprinkle of sequins in gold to match the Scribble Hello sentiment, and some pearls for the Stitched Bloom Trio flower centers.
I hope you find some quiet time to create today!
