Friendship Card

In one of the classes that I teach, I am trying to express to my students the need to step out of your comfort zone if you want to make a difference in our business society.  Well, it is time I do the same myself, so I have been watching a lot of video’s on distressing so I thought I would try something out of my comfort zone.  I do not do a lot (next to none) of work using distressing inks.  I have done a couple of very simplistic projects I will share later this week.

I created this card by first using a heat embossing with a sparkle white embossing powder.  I then used a Tim Holtz “Tea Dye” Distress Ink to ink the entire design.  Using his distressing tool, I rubbed over the entire design until all of the doily was clean and sparkled.  I topped it off with a stick on rosé simply because I am not good at making flowers (yet).  I am working on that technique by watching more videos.

The inside is stamped with a friendship sentiment; however, this card could easily be used for any holiday or occasion.
