Baby, It's Cold Outside!
That's the theme of the challenge this a.m. over at Splitcoast that inspired my card.
The challenge also asked us to make a background with Distress inks and salt so I was in!
I began making the background by rubbing Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord Distress inks onto my non-stick craft sheet, sprayed with water and then dragged my paper through the wet ink. I immediately sprinkled on some coarse Sea Salt over my paper and set it aside to dry. The salt soaks up the ink and you are left with a beautiful, mottled background.
When dry, I brushed off the salt then stamped the Etched Branches from Penny Black around the edges of the inked piece. I then stamped the sentiment called ...this day to finish off my card.
