With Love

*This post is part of the February promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*
Good morning, happy Friday. I hope you enjoyed Lisa & Sue's demoes of all the great Imagination Crafts' products on Create & Craft yesterday.
My card today shows you another simple background technique, using both dye & pigment inks.....
 I randomly stamped onto watercolour card with Versacolor white ink on the Penny Black Breezy stamp. I applied a lot of ink to the stamp & applied less pressure in some areas in an attempt to get some texture....................

After drying the ink I applied Pool, Sunshine Yellow & Sunset Orange Adirondack inks with a blending tool, then I used a waterbrush remove the ink from the white leaves...........
(All Adirondack inks are currently 40% off in the MEGA SALE)
I applied Pool ink through the TCW Chicken Wire Reverse stencil..................
The word 'love' is from the TCW Live, Laugh, Love stencil, applied with Black Soot DI & the word 'with ' is from a small alphabet stamp set in my stash. The stamping is from the Hobby Art
The finished card again.............
I like the faded appearance of the leaves, it's a change from the crisp appearance of heat embossing.
