CASE Study Challenge #182 - Casing Joni again

Hi! Today I am playing along with another Case Study Challenge. I loved Joni's gorgeous background technique and the colours she used for her card.

 I have stayed with the same colours Joni used on her card. The technique I have used to apply the ink can be found on this card by Maria Fisher (Reislingmama). I spread Distress stains on an acrylic block then stamped them on the card. It took a few goes to get a print I liked. Some I sprayed with water, this one was unsprayed. I decided it just needed a few stars and a bold sentiment. One part stamped, the other off the Silhouette.




Off to cook dinner.
Thanks for dropping in.

Wow. Just perusing your beautiful creations and lookee here - a shout out. Thanks so much, Karen. (I think there is a way to know if people link to you, I just don't know how to do it.) Doesn't it make you feel like a real artist when you play with Distress Inks and water?!?!?
