My sweetie and I are celebrating our anniversary this month, so I've been attempting to come up with a card for him. Sometimes the hardest cards to make are for the ones you love the most--very strange.
Anyway, if you've been following my blog for long, you know I love to play with distress inks. I'm especially fond of the impressionistic look you can get with a dab of distress ink and a few squirts of water. That's how I created the back ground on this card. I used water color paper so it would stand up to the moisture, and simply dripped various distress reinkers on, then misted with water. To get the little splatters, I tapped a distress ink pad on my splat mat, dipped a wet paint brush in, then tapped the brush to make the splatters.
I'm not sure if this is the one I'll give him. But I did feel like an artiste' making it.
Do you find yourself returning to the same technique(s) over and over? Or am I just stuck in a rut--on second thought, don't answer that one! Ha.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by today. Now, go do something artsy--it's good for the soul.
