I made this card using the Simon Says Stamp July 2017 Card Kit. I love the stamp set that came in this set. I was also playing with ink smooshing for this card.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began with a panel of water color card stock. I smooshed some Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink on my acrylic block. I sprayed some water on the block then pressed it to the water color paper. I let it sit for 5 minutes before lifting the block off the paper. The time allowed the ink to really soak in and created a beautiful background. I let the panel finish air drying before I did anything else.
Using white embossing powder, I added the sentiment, birds, and waves to the inked background. I decided to rip the edge of the water color panel for added interest. I scored where I wanted to rip and added some clean clear water on the score mark. After letting the water soak in for a minute I very carefully ripped along the line. I love the result!
Finally, I created a light grey card base and adhered the water color panel.
