Distress Ink background

I just love this stamp from Penny Black, part of a clear stamp set called . I wanted it to appear as a bold statement; therefore I stamped it black ink on white cardstock. For the background, I used the foam applicator tool to add three colors of Distress Inks. Because the inks are water based, they react beautifully to a few drops of water.

I finished up the card with a Lifestyle Crafts die that has gone untouched for over a year. The leaf was cut from patterned paper, the flower base from cardstock, and the layer from vellum. An eyelet was put through the middle to hold the layers together. It was so easy to make a dimensional embellishment! I'll need to use this more often!
