This is a set of four cards titled "Just for you". For some reason this card was a nightmare. I was completely at a loss as to what to do to it. Everything I tried just didn't seem right....until I tried a new technique. Well, new to me anyways. The flourish stamped image was made by stamping with evaporated milk...I know, gross huh? You take a blank white or cream or light colored card, brush or dip your stamp in the milk and stamp the card. Then take your heat gun and dry it, not too much, just let it bubble for a second...you don't want it to get too brown. Then take your inks and dab or spray over the card, then immediately wipe it off...instant total bad ass image. I used a combo of Ranger Distress "Peeled Paint" with a spritz of Tsukineko Walnut Ink. The image may be a little sticky...so just lightly brush with baby powder and it's all good in the hood, baby!

I found this technique in an old copy of Somerset Studio magazine...So, it's not like I made some great discovery on my own! LOL
