This was the first one I made.. A midsection created with score lines and masked off with scrap paper. TH masks and some inks sponged on. I liked it... but thought perhaps it would be improved with a bit more 'depth' in the background like so..
With masks in place, script stamped in picket fence distress stain and then the same inks sponged on (with a bit less of the vibrant blue as I wasn't so sure about it!)
I have deliberately left the sentiment off the second version, in case I don't want to use it as a birthday card. And I really can't decide which I prefer, I think that I like them both!
So I need your help to decide which to send! The card from yesterday's post, the top one or the bottom one from this post! Mum's vote is yesterday's share. I'm really torn!
Whatever I send, this is definitely a technique I'll be doing again - I only recently got myself some sponges and some ink duster brushes, and I have loved playing with them! Such different effects! And so QUICK to make! I'll definitely be making some of these to send off to St Luke's with my next load!
