Since Saturday was World Card Making Day, I wanted to create a card even though I wasn't able to craft with friends. I needed a card for our grand niece who suffered a burn in a microwave accident. I used Distress Inks and acetate to create the background. She will be getting this card with a little something in it to help her feel better. And since she's a teenager, you know exactly what that little something is - LOL!
I smooshed two Distress Inks on my craft mat and spritzed them with water. Then I placed a piece of acetate on the inks (separately) and placed the acetate down onto the card panel. I dried the first color with my heat gun before adding the other color. I did this a couple of times, adding the color to a different section of the panel each time. Then, using two separate dies, I cut the sentiment, adhering the words to the base. I inked the flower stamp with Distress Ink and cut it out, popping it up. I adhered the distress panel to the front of the card base. Finally, I added a strip of Washi. Done!
