This week's Midweek throwdown at OWH is to make a No-Sentiment card. I often end up with cards like this when I finish a card and there's no rule that says you HAVE to have a sentiment for every card.
I'm packing up for a scrap retreat this weekend and my Distress Inks weren't packed up yet, so that's what I used. I started out with a Hero Arts diamond background stamp, which I stamped with Versamark ink and then embossed in white. Next, I sprayed the image with Perfect Pearls mist and dried it with my heat gun.
Taking it another step, I used Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink to bring out the diamonds. I cut a tag from the Cricut Celebrations cartridge and stamped Inkadinkado Fleur-de-Lis stamps, embossing them with Antique Gold embossing powder. I used Aged Mahogany and Walnut Stain distress inks on my tag.
Whew! What a lot of inking! I finished my tag off with an antique brad and button paper that I distressed. I think the card is a bit bulky now, so it will be an Any Hero card instead of one that can be mailed home.
Voila! Here it is:
My fingers are all inky now! I really enjoyed making this card and I appreciate your kind comments.
