Too Much Wonderful!
Thank you for stopping by for my I Brake For Stamps Monday share! Today, bister meets distress ink and BOOM! I love how this project turned out! Do you ever make something and are just in love with it??
I can easily admit that this is a complete CASE! I'm a pinterest addict, I admit it. I frequently see things that inspire me or make me WOW! Sometimes, I pin them other times, I store it in my noodle. When I saw the original card, I thought three things: 1) I have that die! 2) Bister would create a fabulous version and 3) I'm gonna CASE that!
For this project, I used specialty paper such as the Stampinback Paper found in the IBFS store. I cut the die twice. Once from the specialty paper and once from coordinating cardstock. My background includes yellow bister---which I notice takes on a much more earthy tone when overwatered ;) I've also used Barn Door distress ink that I watered down and dropped onto the surface with a pipette. You'll see lighter pinkish splots (it's a word!)--these were larger droplets of color that I blotted with a towel to create a more subtle coloring.
Working with the yellow bister on the die cut, I sprinkled the powder randomly on different leaves and then spritz with water. After allowing the piece to dry, I added the distress inks direct to the paper. I did not spritz with water because I wanted the two inks to remain separate and vibrant.
To finish things off, I added Wonderful in black ink so it pops right off the page! When you shop IBFS, please say a warm hello to sweet Ms. Della! Let her know I sent you and save a little $ with my coupon code SAVE10JANE!
Have a great day and don't forget to be awesome!
