I’ve been dabbling with some different mediums lately and it was fun to use them on a card (I usually make a tag).  For main focal point on this card I did the following:

  1. Stamped the swoosh image in Distress ink on white cardstock seven times.  I used: Dusty Concorde, Tumbled Glass, Shabby Shutter and Mustard Seed.
  2. The Distress Ink was a bit bright, so I softened the look by painting some white gesso over the stamped cardstock. Let dry.
  3. Next I inked up two of the splat-y circles with Tumbled Glass Distress Paint and stamped. Let dry.
  4. Stamped the “celebrate” and “your day” in Jet Black Archival ink.
  5. Distressed the edges and stitched to a slightly larger piece of white cardstock
  6. Mounted main panel on card base with foam tape and finished with a few light green rhinestones.

All in all, this was actually a very fast card to make.  Hmm.. I’m excited to play with these sets a bit more. :)

  6. Very fun! It looks like you watercolored those stripes--how great that it is a stamp (and much easier, too.) I noticed the name of your blog and the fact that your two stamped circles look like a cat (at least to me).
