Today, I wanted to challenge myself to create a simple one-layer card.
I have had this star stamp for awhile and haven't really used it so today was the day.
I began by masking off the sides of my card with painter's tape. I find even though the painter's tape is a low tack tape it can pull your paper a bit so I stick it on my clothes first, then onto my paper so it is less sticky. With the tape in place, I stamped the grunge stars with Versamark ink and embossed them with white powder. I then sprinkled Brusho over that and sprayed with water to activate the paint. I love the splotchy colourful background.
Lastly, when all was dry, I stamped this perfect sentiment for my card using Memento black ink with my MISTI. I love using my MISTI for stamping over a painted background as I can repeat stamp for a dark image. When I removed the tape, I had a nice crisp, white border with no layers.
Adding my card to these challenges:
