Ahhh.....love playing with inks....do you? I pulled out my lovely Distress Inks (Ripe Persimmon, Dried Marigold, and Salty Ocean) and JustRite stamps, to create a dramatic background for this card:
Using the Woodgrain Background stamp from JustRite....it's stamped Versamark Ink on white cardstock, then embossed with Ranger's Weathered White embossing powder. Salty Ocean Distress Ink was applied using a foam applicator. I roughed up the edges a bit with a distress tool.
To give the center panel an ombre look, I started with the lighter Dried Marigold, then blended into the darker Ripe Persimmon. I went over the entire piece with Dried Marigold to blend. The flowers and sentiment are from the JustRite Create a Flower Garden, Multi-Step Flower Garden, Small Oval Wishes stamp set, and stamped in Memento Black Tuxedo Ink.
Thanks for stopping by today! It's summertime....and there's a heat wave....stay inside, stay cool, and get inky!
