Hi folks. Are you having a good week so far? I’ve been a busy beaver stamping because tomorrow is the new release blog hop for Technique Junkies. So please don’t forget to come back and check out this awesome release. I think it’s my favourite release so far.
For today’s card I used my newly bought shimmer cardstock. Can you see the sheen? The only downside to this cardstock is that it takes a while for the ink to dry. I started out with eight backgrounds and ended up with five because of smudging. Grrrr.
To create my background I used the following Distress ink pads: Mustard Seed, Tattered Rose, Dusty Concord and Faded Jeans. I sponged the colours on and then let it dry and stamped out Bare Tree Duo. After it sat to dry (I rarely use a heat gun to dry my work) I put my background into my Misti and stamped out the With Sympathy, Set of 5 sentiment. My card front was then matted with Black and SU’s Marina Mist.
