It has been a while since I made a card … I did not even get Christmas cards out this year. But, my mother-in-law’s birthday was last month and she always deserves a homemade card, so I got to work.
I started by coating a plain sheet of white cardstock (cut to size) with Distress Ink. I sprinkled a bit of water, dried it and reapplied some ink. I repeated the process a few times until I got this result.
I then added a bit of ink with a stencil from Sweet Stamps (a Michigan Company).
Using Archival Ink, I stamped the image from Local King Rubber Stamp.
Then, I used another stencil (this one from Dylusions) to add a bit of Transparent Gloss Texture Paste. It will drive crystal clear, but add thick, shiny hexagons. You can see them in the photo below.
Then, I adhered it to a white card base and it was done … I love it — bright and filled with fun, inky techniques.
