Another Distress Card!

Morning Everyone. I just wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate the winners of the first round of the Hero Arts competition, there was some amazing creations and everyone should be very proud of their works. To the girls that have won, enjoy your prize. Good luck to everyone for the next round.

Well decided to post early today as I have the rest of the house work to get done and make a card for a lady that will be here to pick it up this afternoon, so best get cracking.

Before you even say it, I know another Distress card, I can hear all the sighs………LOL, sorry guys just on a roll with that yummy stuff at present…..LOL.

I started with green card stock for the base of card, then on a scratch piece of white card stock I stamped Hero Arts, Long Leaf Flower Border with Versamark Ink 3 times and each time masking the previous one already stamped, I embossed the image with clear embossing powder. I then got my trusty Ranger, Distress Inks, Dried Marigold and Worn Lipstick and started to blend into the middle, this as you all no is embossed resist, once I was happy with the result, I distressed the edges of the image and added some more Ranger, Distress Ink, Brushed Corduroy. I also decided that I needed to have a little something else to the image so I stamped Hero Arts, Good Fortune, Butterfly in 3 different spots on the image. I added some dimensionals to the image and added it to the card. At the bottom of the card I stamped Hero Arts, Everyday Sayings sentiment in Versamark Ink and embossed it with some American Crafts, Zing, White powder. Lastly, added some black pearls either side of the embossed sentiment.

I hope you like today’s card, I will try and stay away from the Distress Inks today, I won’t promise anything, because you have to admit that it is very addictive………LOL.

Have a great Friday everyone.
