- Taping low tack masking tape across the bottom of the panel
- Applying distress inks in peeled paint and weathered wood
- Dropping water onto the panel
- Blotting water with a paper towel
The paper itself is an old patterned paper cardstock with a cloud pattern on it.
I removed the tape (darn it, some paper ripped on the left edge!) and stamped a large leaf image from Club Scrap on top in black ink.
I trimmed this panel to get rid of the ripped part, mounted it on two layers of cardstock and added a sentiment. And, I'm done!
I'm thinking there are some more of these in my future - very simple, but I think a card with some interesting texture and background effects is great for any occasion.
