Just Living Is Not Enough and Live Craft Die

Hello!!  It's Wanda here today to share a card using one of the brand new Quietfire Design stamps, Just Living Is Not Enough, along with the Live Die.

I started with a 5" square of Glossy Cardstock.  I stamped the flower image (Tim Holtz) with Versamark Ink repeating until I had as many images as I wanted.  Over this I inked with Distress Inks Vintage Photo and Barn Door using a Mini Blending Tool.  The Versamark Ink resists the Distress Ink and the flowers pop.  I then stamped the flowers again using Barn Door and dried the ink with a heat tool.  Next I pressed a damp towel over the whole panel and dried it which gave the ink a light speckled look.  I stamped the quote with Archival Ink Jet Black, dried it with a heat tool and then cut it from the background using a Stitched Square Die (Elizabeth Craft Designs).  I distressed the edges of the background, layered it to Glossy Black Cardstock, and attached the square with Kool Tak Clear Adhesive Foam exactly where it had been cut from.  This means the background images flow right across the square even though it is popped up from the background.  A White Paint Pen (Posca) was used to put dots right on top of the dots cut with the die.  The edges of the black panel were distressed, black twine tied around the layered panel and it was attached to the folded red card.  Live was die cut from white cardstock and from black cardstock, adhered together offset a bit and attached to the card as shown.
