Unfortunately I haven’t been able to enter the challenges on the Stampotique Designers blog for a while, but I have made this card for the latest one and I must try harder to enter more frequently! The theme this time is to use red, pink and white , but I have to confess that there is not a lot of white on mine! I have used the wrinkle free distress technique for the background, but as well as using Distress Inks I have also added some of the new metallic Distress Stains (Tarnished Brass) to the mix. This resulted in lovely little spots and hazes of gold. For the flower I covered a chipboard shape with crumpled up tissue paper and painted it with acrylic paint. When it was dry I rubbed some Inka gold over to highlight the raised parts.
