Hello!! I hope you had a wonderful holiday!!! Today I'm sharing a simple card using one of the new, to-be-released at CHA, A Way With Words dies, Congrats.
Starting with a piece of Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Cardstock, I added Distress Stain Wilted Violet over the whole piece and while that was still wet sprayed a couple of spots with Distress Spray Stain Salty Ocean. I took a damp towel and blotted up excess ink which also gives the color a bit of a mottled look. I flicked some water over the panel, blotted it with a dry paper towel and then dried it. The bottom half of the paper was embossed using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Damask Embossing Folder. I tore the left and right edges of the paper and used a distressing tool along the top and bottom edges. To highlight the embossed areas more I used Distress Stain Brushed Pewter getting the dabber top wet with stain and then lightly brushing it back and forth across the embossing. Pewter was also brushed along the edges of the not embossed area. Congrats was cut from Soft Finish Cardstock backed with Double Sided Adhesive and attached to the panel so it looks like it's sitting atop the embossed area. The panel was attached to a folded white card.
