Thinking of You

Thinking of You

For this card, I wanted to try a different approach. So I started off Heat Embossing the Turtle Image. Then, I used make up sponges to rub the Distress Ink in certain areas of the image. The raised embossed area resists the ink, so no need to be neat about it. Once, I was happy with the results of the ink I then sprayed with my homemade Glimmer Mist and let dry. Matted the turtle with yellow cardstock, tore the edges for a distressed look, added the sentiment, flowers and BAM! Finished! I really like the card and already have a few other versions floating around in my head.
