Inspired Stamp Challenge Week, Day 6

It's day 6 of my fun challenge with Jennifer McGuire. :) This is our inspiration card today: {Created by me, originally inspired by Sasya, HERE.}
Jennfer and I are both using the Hero Arts Dogwood (S5362) today:Here's my take: I created the background on this card using Fired Brick Distress Ink and the Fired Brick Distress Ink Refill. First, I used the ink blending tool to apply a light layer of distress ink to white watercolor paper. Then I spritzed it with water. Next, I took the refill dropper in Fired Brick and applied small drops of ink at the top of the paper. I sprayed it heavily with water and the ink dripped down the paper. Once dry, I stamped the script (Hero Arts CG197) and added Walnut Stain Distress Ink to the edges of the background. I think I will be using this technique in the future--so fun (and so messy)!!!

And check out Jennifer's take on the challenge HERE. I can only imagine how beautiful it will be! :) See you soon for our last day of the Inspired Stamp Challenge. I must say, I'm sooo sad to see this coming to an end... :(
