Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hi everyone!
I am sharing my card for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog hop.


Here is the gorgeous inspiration piece..


And here is my card:


I smooshed my distress inks onto my craft sheet, spritzed with water then dipped my watercolor paper in to move the colors around.  I dried with my heat tool and then dipped back into the colors for added textures.  I embossed the sentiment and tiny hearts from the same set, using Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  These cards are so fun to make because you could never get the same background twice.  Even if you used the same colors you would get a different look each time. 

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stamps:  Big Hugs (PTI)
Accessories:  Quatrefoil cover plate (PTI)
