Art of God

Happy Saturday and time to play.

I just picked up some new flower stamps from Magenta and wanted to play with them on my inky bkg.
So onto the card details.

Often, when I am working on a card either painting with inks or creating a background, I press the inks directly onto my non-stick craft sheet and use the inks from there.  I always have some leftover and that is how this card came to be.
I was using my Distress Oxides for another project, there was some ink left on my non-stick pad so I sprayed with water and pressed a piece of crumpled up plastic wrap into the wet ink and pounced over my white card front and the bkg was born.  Love how the DOX's layer and it is such a super easy way to make background for your cards easily and with things you already have on hand.
Next, I placed the stamps inside my Misti, inked with Archival black and stamped the silhouettes.
The sentiment is a new one to me from Technique Junkies.

 Hope you give it a try and thanks again for the visit!

This is a super card and you have made a wonderful background pouncing with a scrunched up plastic bag, must give that a go myself. I love the black flowers and sentiment too. x
