2016-07-15; Swabbed up Dylusions ink spray aka Trash to Treasure
Yesterday when I made THIS CARD I had lots of over spray on the craft mat. I was about to wipe it up with a paper towel but the amount of ink on the mat was pretty abundant. I grabbed a scrap of white card stock from the box of card parts (it already had the punched corner & flower on it) and swabbed up the ink. I threw it aside to dry.
This morning I looked at it, it didn’t look that great. But I had received a card with paint swooshes across it and some stamping and I thought what the heck, give it a try.
I started by stamping a large crackle background in watermark ink and then dusting with gold Perfect Pearls. Next the collage stamps came out and I stamped in Expresso ink over the top.
The flower had already been punched in this piece prior to my swabbing up ink. In order to trim it to size to be matted I folded back the petals and using the paper trimmer cut it down.
The word dream is by by Art Impressions.
And one more look at the card before you go on about your day…
The other things I added was a tiny foil sticker to the center of the flower and a punched dragonfly out of holographic metallic silver card stock.
I am surprised the ugly piece of card stock that was used to wipe up ink off a mat turned out this pretty. I actually like this piece better than yesterday’s card. It is a shame you can’t see this in real life. The shimmer from the Perfect Pearls makes this card glimmer with a hint of shimmer when tipped and turned so the light hits it just right.
