Technique-y



Sorry I have been an absent blogger. Life has gotten in the way. I have been keeping up with the running and with Easter this last weekend. Any who......

Here is my Technique-y card. I needed to make a b-day card for my boyfriend's uncle so I decided to keep with the man colors and go techniquey. It is not really masculine, but it is not feminine either. I figured to go with a technique, since he won't be the one keeping the card...his stampin' wife will. I started out by stamping the text background in peeled paint. I embossed the leaf images over the text using clear embossing powder. Then I rubbed peeled paint, broken china, and shabby shutters distress ink over the entire image and spritzed the entire image with a little water. That is about all on this card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Paper:
Soft Suede cardstock (SU!); White cardstock (Neenah); Teal cardstock (Archiver's)
Stamps: Turning a New Leaf and Background Text (PTI); Sentiment (SU!)
Ink: Basic Black (SU!); Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Broken China (Ranger Ink); Versamark (Tsukineko)
Extras: Hodgepodge Hardware (SU!); Ribbon (From my Stash); Clear Embossing Powder (Ranger Ink)

Lovely card! I never thought about spraying it with water after the resist, but it turned out great.
