Quick card with lots of interest

I've been wanting to play with masking again since my class last week and after gathering some inspiration on pinterest (check out my card ideas board to see some of the cards I've been pinning!). I made this card base by:

  • 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.
