I stopped by Maple Treehouse (a scrapbooking store in Singapore) and picked up a bunch of mini distress ink cubes. Their price point is excellent in comparison to other purchasing options in Singapore…the one thing I wish I could change is their location because IMM is literally on the other side of the country for me. But I promise, the trip is worth it for anyone else here who is an eastie in Singapore. 🙂
For this card, I knew I wanted to experiment with distress ink blending. I used Dusty Concord and Picked Raspberry with a foam blending tool to get the color on. Then I sprinkled some clear water on my cardstock and lifted the droplets with a clean paper towel. The effect removes some of the color, creating a unique bleached look. I love it!
For the sentiment, I used a stamp set by Avery Elle (Brushed Clear Stamps). I got mine used on Carousell for $12. It’s an older set but a good one. I love the font – gives you that hand-drawn brush lettering look that is so on trend right now.
Since my focal point was already so bold and vibrant, I kept the rest of the card clean. I used a cross stitched rectangle die from Gina Marie and finished off the card with some clear gems and a felt stitched heart.
