One of the distress ink backgrounds I made is the background for the card I am sharing today. If you are unfamiliar with this technique, there is a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers that explains it very well!
I chose dies and stamps from My Favorite Things (Amazing and Doubly Amazing) and some flowers from Prima for my card. The texture in the gold die cut was already on the paper, so it made it easy! There is a dot for the "i" in amazing, but I decided to leave it off on purpose with this design. I added some Jute String from Really Reasonable Ribbon behind the flowers (I think that was the hardest part - getting it to lay like I wanted! Thank heavens for glue dots!) and layered it on the card base and it was done! A WOW look for an easy card! The part I love best is that you never know what your background will look like! Give it a try!
