I decided to get out my new Distress Oxide inks and play around with the background. I stamped the metal image in Versamark ink repeatedly on a piece of Distress Watercolor paper and heat set with white embossing powder. I then started playing around with 3 ink colors - Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Worn Lipstick. I love how these Distress Oxide inks are chalky and give a different look to your projects.
I added some ink splatters using my Finetec gold watercolor and some splatters of the same distress inks. I stamped the heart image with Versamark ink onto some vellum and heat set in gold embossing powder. I then fussy cut the image out and adhered to the watercolor panel with foam tape. The I adhered the panel onto a piece of Mint Macaron yardstick from Stampin Up. The entire panel was then adhered to a top folding A2 card base made from thick Whisper White from SU!
