Crisp Cantaloupe #1
For this card, I was inspired by the 'Distress Ink' look and the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. Instead of the second banner, I chose a heart shaped Crisp Cantaloupe element stamped with one of the flowers from 'I Like You'.
To get my "Distress Ink" feature panel, I inked up my acrylic block with Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana. I then spritzed it with water so that little beads formed over the block. I then stamped my Whisper White card stock (punched into a tag shape with the Scalloped Tag Punch), blotted the excess ink and then let it dry. I flicked water droplets onto my tag to get some lovely mottled effects and then I stamped the same flower stamp that I used on my heart onto the edges of the tag.
I love how the tag ended up - the colours blend beautifully and the random effect of water reacts so well with the inks and card stock. LOVE IT!
My Crisp Cantaloupe sequins that I ordered haven't turned up just yet, so I used some random cantaloupe-coloured sequins that were sitting in my 'bits & bobs' jar.
Hope you like my card!
