Diagonal Distress

CR00436 square

I just felt like having a play with Distress oxide inks and trying out my new sentiment die, so I made a quick birthday card.

I masked off a diagonal band, blended Distress oxide inks across it and then flicked water drops over to lift some of the ink and add a bit of texture.

I drew some faux stitching along the edges of the band with a silver gel pen and then flicked black paint over the whole panel.

The sentiment was die cut from black card and covered with Wink of Stella to give a little sparkle. Once that was glued in place, I added some glossy accents dots to finish it off.
