Hey there! I'm here today with a quick card for this week's VLV challenge! Amy is our hostess this month and came up with this BEAUTIFUL sketch!
Here's my card!
This card started out with me just playing with my Distress Stains. I was rubbing them on paper, just playing and havin' fun. Then I thought, "Hey! What if I clear emboss some leaves and do a little Distress Stain resist? So that's kinda where this card came from, haha! I cut a piece of white cardstock to 3.25x4.5 and stamped and clear embossed the leaves from Bloom and Grow. Then I used my Shabby Shutters Distress Stain and just rubbed it over the whole piece of cardstock, using tissue to wipe excess stain off of the leaves.
I think the Distress Stain is my new favorite technique, there are so many fun ways to use this product. I bet this technique would look awesome with a gradient color combo using different colored stains. I think I'll try that tomorrow!
In this picture, you can see the turqouise flower from Bloom and Grow (cut out using the Floral Circles dies) sticking out from behind the bow. The sentiment is from You and I and the tags are the Tiny Sweet Scalloped Tag dies. The paper is from Portabello Road by MME:)
Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back later this week...
