DAY #7 - Mixed Media Card Week

Welcome to Day #7

Summary Process

I couldn't go without one final time using my favourite background technique!  Yes, the "Wrinkle-Free Distress" technique by Tim Holtz!

I cracked out my other favourite technique once again too... the white pen doodling round the edges of the background! I also used the white pen to splash white on the pink area of the background.

The inked background was layered onto brown cardstock before adding to the card.

The cute image from the Bubbles range by That Craft Place (link below) is printed onto That Craft Place Super-Smooth card and coloured with Copics (colour list also below!)

I finished the card with a the greeting stamped in matching distress ink, perfectly framed with lust flowers, handmade by Petal Lu (link below).
