Happy September!!! I hope you are as excited for a 3 day week-end as I am!! I work on a college campus and classes started last week. It's great to have the vibrancy of students on campus so I channeled some of their awesome energy into this card. It's also great to have the break from the challenges of parking once they're back. LOL
How wonderful is this image from Just Dance from Pickled Potpourri Designs!! I love the joy in this image and wanted it to be the highlight. I printed the image on kraft cardstock and then went to town with distress oxide inks. Carved pumpkin is around the image, mermaid lagoon and wilted violet are on the edges. I used a dauber to blend them into each other. Then I spritzed the edges with water and dabbed with a paper towel to get all that texture. Isn't it lovely?! I didn't mask the image when adding the inks. I turned the dauber to an angle and pulled the inks away from the image. You could also do this with a make-up sponge or brush or a q-tip. The same ink colors were used on the sentiment strip from the Today digi stamp set. Love how it turned out! This would be a great birthday, congratulatory or a friend card to send.
