Hi, everyone – Michelle here with three relatively quick cards, using a technique I really love!
I started by stamping a sentiment from Hero Arts “Truly Appreciated” stamp set in black Hero Arts die ink, and then masked it off. I then liberally sponged Distress Inks over the rest of the card front, not worrying at all whether it was blotchy or blended – very rough and ready! Next, I put my Hero Arts “Large Lotus Pattern” stencil over the top, and sprayed with water, then blotted the water away with paper towel. The water creates a watermark (funny, that!) by removing some of the Distress Ink. I love the fact that some of the water seems under the edges of the stencil, so there are no really sharp edges.
I love this technique so much, I made three cards using different colours of Distress Inks.
For this last one, I used a sentiment from WPlus9 – they’re our collaboration partner for May, and they’re one of my favourite stamp companies!
Make sure you come back tomorrow for our challenge – there’s a chance to win a voucher from Simon Says Stamp!
