Thank You

I had started out thinking I would sponge Distress Ink through this swirly stencil - that wasn't too bad. So with another attempt I first ran the stencil through my Cuttlebug with the rubber mat and got a great impression so I replaced the stencil and tried sponging through it onto the raised swirls - mmm not too bad. Then I realised I had heaps of sponged ink on the stencil and I decided to give it a light water spray and ran it again through the Cuttlebug with a new piece of white card....
And this is the result... I'm rapt - I got a lovely soft background and the white embossed swirls are really highlighted. Another little pre stamped image from my stash drawer and coloured with Distress Ink and given a good wetting spray softened the colours and pushed the colours "out of the lines" .... I like to "keep in the lines" but I love how soft this turned out. Finished the card by layering the image on some matching cardstock.  Thanks for taking a peek Robyn
