Bold and Big

I love this bold and big stamp from Stampin' Up! And how quick and easy to make this background using my craft mat, distress ink (Mermain Lagoon), and water! 

I dragged the ink across the mat, sprayed, and then lay my white cardstock in the wet ink. Once dry, I stamped the "just for you" with VersaMark ink and embossed with a combination of silver and black embossing powder for a kind of ombre look. It gets lighter as it goes down the page. I added the second part of the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then adhered everything to Kraft cardstock.

An easy card with a bold and big statement!
