Creating this card was so easy and quick and the results were stunning (I think).
Shop the Technique Junkies store for this stamp "Old Pier" and recreate it your own way. It's one of those stamps that can carry any message, which is why I didn't add a sentiment to my card. It could be a sympathy card, a birthday card, a thinking of you, card...anything. And wouldn't it make a lovely card for a gift pack of note cards for a special gift for someone? If you're shopping the Technique Junkies Stamps store and want to purchase this stamp (or any other stamps in the shop INCLUDING Ken Oliver Color Burst pigment powders) and would like a 10% discount off your entire order, use my coupon code of TJ10Cheri.
To create this card, I stamped the image on a white cs panel with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then used a Distress Oxide Inks and heavily sponged them over the embossing. I then used an aqua brush to "paint" in water and lift the color to create dimension. It's a technique shown recently on Jennifer McGuire's blog. I absolutely love the results I got here.
