Stretch Your Stamps - Day 6

I'm back with another card for the Stretch Your Stamps 2 class. If you've been following, you'll notice that I skipped a few lessons and jumped from day 2 to day 6.  Tee hee!  There's no reprimand from the teachers for doing that! Donna's lesson using Distress Inks and water caught my eye so I thought I would give that one a whirl.


The flower image was white embossed and Distress Inks were used on the background and I used water to remove some of the colour from the flower petals.  It's very subtle but great for CAS cards.


The sentiment was gold embossed and I splattered some Heidi Swap Gold Color Shine over the piece. This was attached to the card front which was white embossed with Hero Arts Tiny Flags stamp.

Off to make another project.  I wonder what day will be next?  Stay tuned!
