Wow, it’s been awhile..

I just wanted to participate in Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember challenge


This is my card:

ImageI used a Hero Arts stamp (CG171 Blooming Meadow).  I embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I took distress inks and made a palette on my non-stick craft sheet.  I spritzed the craft sheet with water mixed with perfect pearl and smeared the stamped piece across (mix of techniques learned from stalking Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner).  I did this multiple times.  I also ended up adding lots of distress ink with the sponge tool and spritzed again.  I basically kept adding color like this (using my non-stick craft sheet and the sponge tool) until I liked the color.  To get the splotches, I took some flicked some water onto the stamped piece. 🙂  The black strip is also watercolor paper that I sprayed with some homemade black mist.  I used a Papertrey Ink stamp (Everyday Button Bits) for the sentiment.
