HYCCT1522 Adopt the Pace of Nature
This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers’ “Hope You Can Cling To” HYCCT1522 Angie’s “Tears Can Be A Good Thing” Challenge to use the Wrinkle-Free Distress background technique (FYI- I used distress stains versus inks) :-))
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above gallery- wonderful inspiration from all!!
To create this card:
Apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Forest Moss, Chipped Sapphire and Brushed Corduroy Distress Stains onto a craft mat, spritz with water and lay a piece of watercolor paper over the ink.
Press the paper into the ink, twist as you lift up the panel turning to allow the ink to run and merge.
Use the Heat Tool to dry the panel, spritzing with water, re-apply additional ink and drying with the Heat Tool until you are satisfied with the results.
De-static the panel with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the image using Versamark™ Ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder, heat with the Heat Tool to melt the powder and allow the embossed image to cool.
Use the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things™ (MFT) Horizontal Stitched Banners Die to cut out the image, mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Delightful Dijon cardstock.
Ink the large solid splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Delightful Dijon Classic Ink and stamp onto the upper part of a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Ink the large splatter stamp using Mossy Meadow Classic Ink and stamp onto the panel as well.
Trim and mount onto Delightful Dijon cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
Mount the embossed panel onto the card front using dimensional foam and add the Pearls to finish off the card.
