Today, I’m a Guest Designer at Through The Craft Room Door! I love Guest Designing! If this is your first time here, WELCOME! I’m thrilled to have you here! For this post, I had to make a card for a female Graduate so my browns were left in their cases – LOL. If you like exclusive Samples and Tutorials, Click here to subscribe to my mailing list.
I used both Distress Stains and Distress Inks on this background. Starting with the Distress Stains – Peacock Feathers, Wild Honey and Bard Door – I smushed some onto a Craft Sheet and spritzed with a little Water (maybe two spritzes). I dragged Manila Cardstock (4″ x 5 1/4″) through the inks and heat set.
Next, I applied the same color Distress Inks onto the cardstock with a blending tool.
The “Life…Learning to Dance in the Rain” from the Tim Holtz Good Thoughts Stamp Set was stamped directly onto the cardstock using Archival Black Ink.
The same color Distress Stains were used to dye TH Crinkle Ribbon.
The Crinkle Ribbon was tied into a Double Bow (See How To Tie a Double Bow using your Fingers HERE.) It was then adhered to the card using Glue Dots.
A Plaquette was attached to the card front using a Paper Piercing Tool and Brads.
