Hello!  This week I share with you a series of inky mixed media cards I've been making!

Each day I'll highlight one card and talk you through the supplies and techniques I've used.

Welcome to Day #3

Summary Process

Yet again I used the "Wrinkle-Free Distress" techniques by Tim Holtz for the background.
 

I used many of the same techniques for most of the cards in this series so check out my other posts for anything I haven't mentioned here!

The "LOVE" and arrows came from a stencil by That Craft Place and were applied in Archival Ink.

I died cotton bias binding with Distress Inks and finished the card with a stamped mandala.
