Soft pink poppies & a give away

You can find me over on the Foiled Fox blog today sharing all the details about this soft summery card. It reminds me of one I made a couple of years ago with an all over poppy pattern. I used distress stains and markers to get a loose watery look then gold embossing powder for the sentiment and some gold splatter. You can read about my process on the Foiled Fox blog.

I have teamed up with the Foiled Fox today to not only share this card but also a GIVEAWAY! If you comment here or on the Foiled Fox blog you will be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to spend at the Foiled Fox online store. You have until the end of Sunday, July 8th to enter.

    Could you use re inker ink instead of stains with the same effect?

    Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone

    • Heather says:

      I’m not sure if you would get the same effect but you are not the first one to ask me so I should do some experimenting. I think you might need to dilute the reinker ink a bit.
