Finally made a card
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and have a Happy, Healthy New Year ahead.
I have finally been able to make a couple of cards, since getting home I just hadn't felt like doing much crafting.
I want to start using my stamp pads and stamps more for making my own backgrounds so for this card I took a piece of white card stock, and using The Distress Ink pad festive berries I swiped it a few times on my craft mat and instead of spritzing it with water I used Glimmer Mist then wiped my white card stock over it until it was completely covered.
After waiting for it to dry I stamped the leaves and grass first with some white ink, then went over it again with the black ink.
The sentiment has been stamped onto the Marianne Design Floral Circle Die using shrink plastic.
The red flowers I made with the Memory Box Cherry Blossom die and the little white ones I made with some punched out pieces that were sent to me.
Below I have tried to show the sheen on the background using the Glimmer Mist.
