A Couple of Cards


I used a piece of glossy paper from a magazine for the top one and a piece of text paper from a paperback book for the bottom one.  I coloured the papers with various colours of distressed inks and dried them with the heat tool.  I stamped the images using versamark ink and clear heat embossed over the top.  Using walnut stain distressed ink, I brayered over both pages and where clear embossed wiped away the ink.  Tore the edges, mounted, added ribbons and skeleton leaves to the top one and stamped the edges with sand eco friendly paint.  I haven't added any sentiments yet as I don't know what I am going to use them for but I was in need of a bit of a play having spent the day researching and typing up the first draft of my Equality & Diversity Assignment!!!!!
