Thinking of You


I started with a piece of watercolor paper, sponging 3 different Distress inks (Twisted Citron, Wilted Violet and Mermaid) I spritzed the poinsettia stamp with water and pressed it into the inks giving the white shadow look and let it dry. Next I inked the stamp with Versafine Onyx Black and stamped it close to the shadow image. The sentiment panel is a MFP stamp, heat embossed with white ep on a black panel. The layers were all die cut with Lil Inker stitched rectangles. 
Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day whatever you're doing.

Carol, I really like that shadow effect you achieved here. Great choice of colored inks also. With the white o=against the black it really makes a statement and that is what you want to do with a "thinking of you" card. Very, very nice. Enjoy your day.

What a cool technique! Was wondering how you got that neat shadow. I need to play more with my distress inks and watercolor paper.

I love the bright color combo. The image having the shadow is a nice detail and as always, you frame your images so well!

That ghosting technique is really cool and I love how it makes your flower pop.

Awesome background, and liking the way you've got the shadow treatment done. (I've yet to be very successful trying this water technique.) A great silhouette to create this nice look too. TFS

This card is so cool Carol! I love how you did your background with the inks but I really love how your stamped your flower in white and then in black, loving the white shadow! I also love the card base, it looks like you inked that too. Love this one! Hugs, Brenda
