I Brake For Wonderful

{jane bosi}

Happy Monday, Brakers!!  Today, bister meets distress ink and BOOM!  I'm a pinterest addict, I admit it.  I saw a card similar to mine and thought three things 1) I have that die! 2) Bister would create a fabulous version and 3) I'm gonna CASE that! 

For this project, I used specialty paper such as the Stampinback Paper found in the IBFS store.  I cut the die twice.  Once from the specialty paper and once from coordinating cardstock.  My background includes yellow bister---which I notice takes on a much more earthy tone when overwatered ;)  I've also used Barn Door distress ink that I watered down and dropped onto the surface with a pipette.

Working with the yellow bister on the die cut, I sprinkled the powder randomly on different leaves and then spritz with water.  After allowing the piece to dry, I added the distress inks direct to the paper.  I did not spritz with water because I wanted the two inks to remain separate vs blending.

To finish things off, I added Wonderful in black ink so it pops right off the page!

Have a great day and don't forget to be awesome!
TTFN, Jane
