Hi everyone and happy summer!Â This is Jennie and I am very excited to bring you my first blog post for this new CardMaker
Blog Team term! Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite techniques of Ghosting with Distress inks to create a fun background for cards.
First,Â applyÂ distress ink directly to the paper and allow it to dryÂ a bit.
Once the paper is dry,Â placeÂ a stencil over the inked panel and spritz it with water.
Using a small paper towel roll, roll it over the panel and stencil to help the panelÂ dry.
Let panel fully dry.
ThenÂ simply stamp a sentiment and add a decorative flower to the panel.
It is a simple technique to add a “pop of wow” to any paper-crafting project! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
