This card started off being something totally different. I have been playing with my Distress inks and markers this past week making backgrounds. I love watching Kristina Werner's blog and You Tube channel and got on a kick with the Distress inks. I was trying to make the background pink, yellow and orange but it just was not working. I used my markers to put ink on the water color paper and when I added water the marker lines were still showing. I gave up on it and left it alone for a couple of days and then sprayed it with water again. I kept adding ink and water and used my heat gun to dry in between. It still did not look just write so I laid my Simon Says Medium Dot Stencil and blotted water on top. It added just a subtle effect. Then I splattered it with some Heidi Swap Gold Color Shine. I really loved how it turned out.
Here are some close ups to see the gold shine added.
