I created the card using a Hero Arts background stamp called "Large Fabric Design". I applied random blotches of Distress Inks to my craft mat and gently squished the stamp into the ink. Next I sprayed the stamp with Sheer Shimmer Spritz and stamped the image on Strathmore 140 lb watercolour paper. When the ink had dried, I cut the watercolour paper into 1 inch squares. In order to give the squares more definition, I inked the edges with some Dark Moss Colorbox Chalk Ink. I mounted the squares on a panel of Neenah white cardstock. I added a bow made from some seam binding ribbon which I had died with Vintage Photo ink and scrunched before allowing it to dry. I glued several die cut "hello" pieces together, which were cut from watercolour paper and a dark brown piece to form a shadow effect. I finally mounted the panel on some Candy Necklace Bazzill cardstock. As a finishing touch, I painted a few woodcut butterflies with some Distress Stain Picket Fence and mounted them on the card. I was pleased with the finished result - hope you like it too!
Until next time,
