Moonlight


It's April 1st and the promise of Spring is right around the corner.  My card was created for the CAS challenge at Splitcoast yesterday- shades of blue.  I was in. 
I started by rubbing on 4 shades of blue Distress inks; Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans and Broken China.  Next I sprayed my flower stamp with water and stamped onto the blue.  Since Distress inks are water based, the water lifts off the ink leaving behind a ghost image.  I love the soft look of the image.  I splattered some water on the card front too and added the buttons for interest.

Adding my card to these challenges:
Seize the Birthday- BUTTONS and RHINESTONES
Simon Says- BUTTONS


Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies- stamps; Unity/ Distress inks/ buttons/ mini mister

    I don't think I've seen this technique before...stamping with water onto the inks. Now I'll have to try it!
