Island Birthday

I'm back with another project for Our Daily Bread Designs. Today I'm playing with the Bon Voyage set. This set is perfect for inked backgrounds and dark stamping on top. I have two versions of this card to show you today. They are exactly alike except for the paper used for the inked background and the type of spritz applied after inking.

For the card shown above I used three colors of distress ink blended onto white cardstock. I then spritzed the inked panel with a shimmer mist made of Perfect Pearls mixed with water. The image was stamped with black ink using my MISTI so that I could stamp multiple times to make sure it was completely black. Then I die cut the panel with the next to the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die. The sentiment was stamped in black ink and then clear heat embossed. After matting it with the sea shell paper in the By the Shore paper pad, it was matted again with the darkest paper in the Blooming Garden paper pad that had been die cut with the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die. This panel was then popped up with craft foam over the palm tree paper in the By the Shore paper pad.

This second card was assembled the same way and inked with the same ink colors. However, instead of inking up white cardstock for the background, I inked up one of the lighter papers in the Blooming Garden paper pad and then spritzed it with a silver shimmer spray. Using the patterned paper gives more texture but also a more muted look.

2 beautiful sunsets Stephenie. Must admit I do prefer the first. What did we do before the Misti? I do still have my original stamp positioner but it was hit or miss I must say.
Thanks for sharing at craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge.
