For this card I wrote out the Thank You using a Tombow brush pen in black ink and then cut around the words. Using the new Elinor Background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, I stamped over the top of the words using Broken China Distress Ink. Next I layered various additional colors of Distress Ink, Seedless Preserves, Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo. I spritzed it all with water and applied some heat to set everything.
The base of the card is from Hero Arts and coordinated perfectly with the Broken China ink. I also used Distress Ink on the card base, Broken China and Vintage Photo, and then spritzed that with water and dabbed with a towel. I really like how the coated card base reacted with the Distress Ink and water.
When everything was dry, I used a Ranger collage stick to apply the words to the base and Glossy Accents to apply the Mermaid sequins from Lucy’s Cards, an exclusive from Hero Arts.
I have added this card to my Etsy shop here.
