- SU!- so very much
- Archival ‘jet black’ ink pad
- Watercolour cardstock
- Tim holt distress ink pads/reinkers
- Pixie powders
- Silver star sequin/ embellishments
To create my main panel, I brushed water on to a piece of water colour card. I squished the ink pad onto a palette and added some water. I used a big brush to pick up the colour and touch it to the wet cardstock. I added a small tap of coordinating pixie powders over the top to add shimmer. I left this to dry, removing excess water if necessary. You could use mica powders and reinkers to do this technique if you preferred.
Once fully dry, I stamped the large sentiment stamp slightly off centre, then added the smaller phrase to the bottom corner. I cut the panel down to size and matt and layered onto some black cardstock. I glued this onto the front of my card blank.
The final touch was to add small star embellishments to the card, I think this helps balance the design and completes the sketch. I like how this card uses distress ink to create quite a soft and pretty finish.
