I started by smooshing some distress inks ...stormy sky and frayed burlap into my craft sheet and spritzing with water...I then spritzed a piece of card and swiped it through the inky dots..
I re-swiped until I was happy and then heat dried..
I then applied some texture paste, transparent gloss through a stencil, this one is a Tim Holtz one..
I applied in various places and left to dry
when dry I replaced the same stencil in different places on the background and added some walnut stain distress ink using a blending tool and added some more blue ink to deepen the colour.
I added to card front and inked edges using walnut stain distress ink.
For the main image , I stamped in walnut stain distress ink, which allowed me to take a wet brush and gently move some of the ink to soften the main image slightly...giving a very subltle watercolour effect.
I layered this piece onto some Tim Holtz pieces and a strip of the leftover background...adding a mini plaque and the word home stamped from same set..
Finally tying some dyed seam binding around inside and forming a bow on the front of the card ...to add a little softness..
so hope you like this card ...using simple layers
see you soon ..
keep those fingers inky!
