2 Challenges; 1 Card - Just Because

Pin It

Today's card employs two of the challenges on Splitcoast this week.  The first is a CAS Sketch Challenge using a beautiful card by Nancy Littrell.  The second is a Technique Lovers Challenge to create a wrinkle free distressed background using ink and some water.  This is the same technique I used in this card I showed you Monday.

I used three different Distress Inks to achieve the background and then stamped the images from Mehndi Medallion using the same inks.  I added a little green pearl to the centers of the medallions.  I love this technique and I can see doing a whole set of these little 4" x 4" note cards.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Products Used:
Stamp Sets - PTI Mehndi Medallions and Round & Round
Paper - PTI SS White and Simply Chartreuse
Ink - Distress Inks -Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive; Versafine Black Onyx
Adhesive backed pearls


  1. Cibele, this is STUNNING!!!! Going to have to find time to stop by more often. I love the look of your beautiful background!
