Pink Marble

Sunday, March 23, 2014

This card was a lot of fun to create. 
It was more of an experiment than anything else and I love the texture of the end result.
It reminds me of marble, but also has the look {in person} of a soft, fuzzy texture.

I created the heart by stamping and embossing the sentiment first.
Then, I wet the paper and added the distress inks using a finger dauber. Finally, I flicked and dripped  droplets of water onto the heart.
To create the background I added the color to the paper directly from the ink pad.
I added water {in flicks, drips, and spritzes} and dried the piece about 6 times until I was finished.  After it was dry, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it.  I used a stencil, Versamark ink, and a finger dauber to apply the embossed hearts.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
