Distress Ink Background using Masking and Sponging technique


create a background using distress ink

Hi all! I have used masking and sponging technique to create this card. First, I created a mask for the top and bottom using Washi tape and sponged the rest using Peacock Feathers and Peeled Paint distress inks. I then stamped the butterfly image and sentiment on the colored panel. Both the butterflies and sentiment are "Direction of  Happy" stamp set from Unity Stamps.

I then removed the masks and scored three lines above and below the sponged area and mounted it on a black card stock. Finally, I added some liquid pearls and rhinestones. Hope you like it.

My special thanks to Berina (Moxie Craftie) for the wonderful Stamp Set.
