OK, I've been stalling for some reason when it comes to this week's Less Is More challenge to make a one layer card using INK in a new way (if possible). Mandi's card struck me as so unique and pretty...and she, like many participants this week, did it by inking an acrylic block and spritzing it with water for her background. Lovely! Finally, after seeing the gorgeous cards made by Ann at KingstonMamaCrafts, I decided to give it a whirl. (Nothing like waiting until the last minute!)
I took out my 3" x 4.25" acrylic block and inked the bottom half with Peeled Paint distress ink, while I inked the top half with Broken China distress ink. I generously spritzed the block with water and stamped it onto white card stock. Cool mottled effect! When dry, I stamped the Bicycle and the sentiment in Latte chalk ink and rounded the bottom corners. I'm rather pleased with how it turned out.
I plan to send this to my Uncle Frank, who has been in the hospital for some time due to complications after surgery. He is too far away for us to visit, so I send him cards to let him know I am thinking of him and praying for his quick recovery. I'm thinking this is rather rustic and masculine, do you think so?
Thanks for stopping by...and thanks to all the participants in this week's challenge at Less Is More...you have really inspired me and I'm pleased to have tried something new!
