Greetings Inky Friends!!
Today I'm sharing a fun technique using Distress Stains and a Shimmer Spray.
I began by adding stains directly to my background stamp.
I "activated" the stains using the Dylusions Mica spray which has a shimmer in it.
I was afraid that color would over power the stains, but it did not! I would suggest a translucent shimmer spray but I did not have one available at the time of creating :)
I then took some Distress ink and sponged around the Swaths of Texture background piece.
My focal image uses one of the New October Releases called Mrs. Santas List.
I colored her using Distress Markers and the green piece used behind her was a
scrap left over I had from another project.
Of course I had to add some more shimmer so I added glitter to her santa hat.
I love the vibrant and retro feel of this card. One of my favorites yet!
Until next time...
