Jana *Day 3*

Attention: If you are here for the Hero Arts blog hop, you can view my post HERE (or scroll down). Thanks!

This next card by Jana has such a unique design:
Don't you love the way she has used a portion of the die cut? The leaves look so pretty layered with the text. And that cute flower? It just makes me smile!!
Here is my take:



This card was created entirely using white cardstock (except the green banner strip). The top portion of the die cut was distressed with Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain Distress Ink, then stamped with Mementos Tuxedo Black Ink. The bottom portion of the die cut was distressed and stamped with Crushed Olve Distress Ink. After stamping this portion, I flicked it with water to create the splotches. The flower was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink and colored using Warm Honey and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. The dots and center were added with a white gel pen.
Thanks for visiting- see you tomorrow!

Another fabulous take on Jana's card with you distinctive water splotched background Jill... You are a master at doing amazing distress backgrounds.

I like Jana's half-part die cut, so clever! And your card is really stunning with those colors. You both inspired me with not using the whole die cut.

Love, love, love the water splotches on the bottom of the card. The white pen doodling is a great touch too.
