Today I am showing you a card I made for Card Camp 2, using this weeks color combination.
The card was also made to enter into A Blog Named Hero's current challenge, which is Inspired by a Hero Arts artist. I was really inspired by the technique Jennifer McGuire showed in this video, using baby wipes to quickly smear out ink.
Here's the card I made:
I used distress inks with the baby wipe technique on my card. I smeared ink directly from the inkpad onto a piece of watercolor paper, in straight "fields" next to eachother. I then gently used a babywipe to smear out the colors and blend them together. When the piece was dry, I added some water drops to it as well =) I am so happy with how it turned out, and I enjoyed the process a lot. I hardly NEVER use my distress inks, but the success and fun I had with this technique has me wanting to do more vibrant distress pieces like this. So I have put the seasonal colors of distress inks on my wishlist now, because they are so vibrant and fun =) I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a scrap piece of old bazzill cardstock, to bring in the brown from the Card Camp color scheme.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
