Distressed background card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I have had a card in mind for some time now as my DT-project for The Rubber Buggy, but never gotten around to actually pull out my distress inks. I must get the new colors, I truly still am in love with them.

However, lately I have seen a few cards using the technique I had in mind and they are absolutely stunning. Mine is nowhere near as beautiful, so I'm glad I waited. Otherwise I would probably have abandon the idea.

I used two colors of distress ink. I had three in mind, but I just loved the evergreen bough and tumbled glass so well together, I just stuck with those. I aslo used watercolor cardstock, as I planned to spray the paper with shimmer mist. In the end it would probably have worked fine with regular cardstock as well, as I didn't need that much mist as I thought.

I embossed the sentiment with white superfine detail and I'm amazed with how crisp the small words came out.
