I had seen Lin using a technique with distress inks, stamps and a whole lot of water! I decided to try it with an Hero Arts stamp that was one of the first I bought. I stamped the leaf from the set in a variety of colours of distress onto some water colour paper (cheap variety of paper) and spritzed it liberally with water. Once it dried, I cut it with a Simon Says Stamp edge die, and layered it onto the my card. I added a length of ribbon and then using a Hero Arts die, cut the oval and sponged on some ink. The sentiment is from the same set as is the little butterfly. Finished with some sequins.
I'm just finishing up packing to head up to Mangawhai for the Easter weekend. I've packed a bigger suitcase of crafty stuff, then clothes!
Have a great Easter break.
