Sally *Day 3*

This is one of my all-time favorite cards by Sally: I LOVE her layered background. The white embossing really adds a unique touch to this card, as does the fun shape. The colors on Sally's flowers are natural but also bold. Finally, that gorgeous ribbon finishes this card off perfectly!
Here is my take: I began by distressing white cardstock with Antique Linen Distress Stain. The flowers (Penny Black 4155L) were inked directly on the stamp with Distress Stain (Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, and Fired Brick) then I misted the stamp with water and stamped. Next, I stamped the script (Hero Arts K5344) with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, removing some ink with a baby wipe before stamping. The base of the card (gold section) began as white cardstock. I applied Antique Linen Distress Stain to my craft sheet. I randomly dipped my white cardstock piece into this ink. Once dry, I swiped a layer of Wild Honey Distress Stain directly on the paper. Sentiment by Hero Arts (CL250). Thanks again for peeking! Can't wait to see you tomorrow with a fun Tiffany Doodles post. :)
