I made this card for the Perfect Paper Crafting - Brand Ambassador blog hop which goes through April 4th. You can find more details here.
The background was created by sponging on distress inks then acrylic paint. I then used the Perfect Airbrush to spritz on marker ink. Next I did a white color wash by slightly diluting white acrylic ink on the tip of my frosting knife and blowing it off with the airbrush. It it resulted in large puddles I placed the airbrush nozzle directly over the puddle and squeezed to spread it out. Once dry the molding paste was applied in the upper left corner and the black flower images were stamped. It's a fun way to spend about 20 minutes.
The borders were created using a craft knife, the 1/16" and 1/4" Perfect Layers Mini and the Perfect Cutting Mat to cut on. I get perfect results using these tools and like all Perfect Paper Crafting tools, they are so easy to use!
I cut the die in black and white and offset the white over black to add interest.
The envelope and insert were masked off 7/8" from the bottom and sponged with ink; darker for the insert and use only what's left in the sponge for the envelope. The round flower image was stamped so it's a little beyond the top edge of the ink.
