Plaid is the theme of this card today. So cozy and warm for this time of year.
If you missed it the other day, I did a Mini-Tutorial using stencils, Distress inks and water.
I used that technique to create this plaid background with a stencil from Simon Says Stamp.
I love the way it turned out!
Here is a link to the card and tutorial:
So I began by creating the plaid. I inked the paper first with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink, placed my stencil over my inked paper, sprayed with water and then while still wet, rubbed on Salty Ocean Distress ink. I love how the underlying colour comes through but still has a mottled look.
The flower is from a Stampin Up set called Blooming with Kindness. I painted it with my Brushos and stamped. I then took a wet paint brush and pulled some of the colour into the flower petals.
Stamped the sentiment from Technique Tuesday and mounted the panel over the plaid.
