After coloring, I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images out and began working on the background.
For this card, I ink blended
a piece of smooth cardstock with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink at the bottom,
Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink in the middle towards the top portion of the
panel, and Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink at the top edges. Next, I added
white paint splatters to the panel and set it aside to dry.
While the background was drying, I trimmed a piece of green cardstock, inked the edges with Pine Needles Distress ink, then stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the panel.
I felt like the card needed a
contrasting element to break the purple apart, so I opted for a white scalloped
frame that is slightly smaller than the A2-sized panel.
Once all of the elements were
ready, I adhered the images using either liquid adhesive or foam adhesive and added
the frame to finish my card.
