Enjoy Your Day

Good Morning All! I have made a simple card today involving stamping and making my own background, all with 2 distress ink colours.  At a recent craft show, I saw a demo on how to create a background using distress inks and some water, this is what I created.  The inks are applied to a clear acrylic block, then sprayed with water, then a piece of card layered over the top.  This transfers the ink, to create a lovely background.  When dry, I stamped the images over the top and layered it onto some back card. I used my swiss dots embossing folder for the background  and added a sentiment to complete.

 I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Hi Oksana, this is beautiful, I love the colours! This is a great technique, which I haven't used in ages..so thanks for reminding me about it! I saw Ali Reeve demo it a while ago, was inspired to try it, loved it then didn't do it again :) Carole Z X
