The second card I made today was with the focus on the sentiment. I used a scrap of patterned paper and scrap of plain paper. To play off the circles on the scrap paper, I used one of the geometric stamps from the Paper Smooches set and Versamark ink to add dimension to the plain cardstock.
I also used Tim Holtz Distress Inks on the background of the sentiment. Instead of using water, I used Mister Huey's Color Mist in Shine. It doesn't show in the photo, but there are streaks of shine mixed in with the colors. I am still quite the novice with this technique, but it has been fun to play with.
