Swiped


Today I am showing you a super quick and easy card I made and that anyone could do.  There is no sponging just swiping.  Here is what I did.  I masked a square onto my card front and took my Distress inks and swiped them across the front of my card.  I used 3 colours and when I was done I sprayed water onto the inked area.  I inked up my leaf stamp from Penny Black, stamped that keeping the mask in place and then removed the mask and stamped the sentiment. 
I am adding this card to 2 challenges today.  One at is CAS-ual Fridays; to use pink and CASology ; to use a leaf on your card.  Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps: Penny Black; great day Product No: 3419D, japanese maple Product No: 3932K/ Distress ink/ twine/ Memento black
