Share Laughter


This card is for a Sketch Challenge 95 at Stars and Stamps. They are the blog for Operation Write Home. The sketch was designed by Peggy.

I used Iced Spruce and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks, smashing the ink pad side by side on a craft sheet, and misting with water until the ink beads up and swiping white water color paper through the ink. You can let it dry or heat set, then swipe some more until you get the effect you want.

If you've never watch Tim Holtz's really quick but technique packed video on Distress Inks you can check it out here.

The vellum flowers are pre-cut from Fiskars. Share Laughter is Gold Embossed. The stamp is from a Hero Arts set of the same name, CL151. The ribbon has little specks of gold woven in.

Wow, Ruby, this is stunning. I've watched that video and you really nailed it. The colors are so bright and cheery. I love the flower and what a nice sentiment. I've been going over your blog and I'm very impressed. I am now a follower. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

Beautiful card, Ruby! That watercolor/distress ink treatment is fantastic, it almost looks like the card glows. Love it. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!
