Hugs for You
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Today I wanted to share a background made out of Distress Inks. It is a good way to really highlight any dies that you might have.

To make the background, I sponged Distress Inks onto white cardstock in the following order: Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron Squeezed Lemon, Carved Pumpkin and Picked Raspberry. I was in the mood for really bright and happy colors.  I then cut out by sponged background using one of the new nesting dies that has an arch at the top.

Next, I spritzed the piece with water to give it a speckled look. Here is a closeup:


To finish the card, I added my dies as well as some rhinestones to include a little extra bling. I really like the detail you get from the Curved Cap Pinpoint Layer die. The little pinpoints really add a lot of interest to the edges.

Thanks for stopping by today!
