Hang In There

Happy New Year! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
My samples for Creative Expressions this month feature the lovely cat and dog singles stamps, backgrounds and greetings. For my first card, I've used Pickle - isnt she so cute?

I started with an acetate mask on Coconut White card.

I applied Distress ink using a brush through the mask.

Next I stamped my image and removed the mask.

I removed some of the background colour by wetting the image and blotting the ink away - it doesn't remove all of the ink, but it does add contrast and highlights Pickle, which is what we want.

For the background, I ran the mask and card through my die cutting machine with the embossing mat. Next I applied Perfect Medium through the Argyle mask, then heat embossed in clear (the photo shows me using brown card rather than the green on the finished card, so don't adjust your sets!)

I finished the card by matting the background onto a white card and adding my greeting onto a Tranquil Moments Spellbinders die cut tag.

Thanks for stopping by.
