ARTplorations is having a fun hop today!
I used the Ghosting Technique for this card. Sponge on distress inks [I used Wild Honey, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade] - lay the WEAVING Stencil down over your sponged card panel, spritz it with water, and blot off the water while leaving the stencil on the panel. Lift stencil off. I love the end results of this effect. I then cut down my panel, stamped it with Boxed Blooms and a sentiment from Fond Expressions 2, and embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I am entering this into the April CAS Mix Up Card Challenge; stamping, stenciling, and choice [embossing].
For this card, I sponged on distress inks; [Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn], then I taped my stencil over the panel and sponged on Mermaid Lagoon. [I rather like this look - I have never done that before :).] I stamped Bloom Sketches, colored with Copics, and cut out with a fishtail die. My sentiment is also from Fond Expressions 2.
