This card was made while I was using different materials for backgrounds. This background is made using Memento ink pads. I opened up the ink pads and brushed the ink pad across the plain white card stock. Then I spritzed with water hoping they would run similar to what distress ink does. Well it didn't work as well as distress ink does but the colors are bright and airy so I am happy with that. The banner (or whatever you want to call the white ink embossed piece) was cut using a Fiskar Fuse die and more Memento ink on the embossing part of the die. Then I stamped the Heidi Swapp happy birthday stamp using the same Momemto ink.
I like this card a lot but it of course has it's flaws. The ink at the bottom right hand side didn't all disolve or picked up something from the surroundings or something, you can see speckles on the card stock. After I sprayed the color on the card stock then the paper warped really badly. I don't notice that distress ink warps the paper this badly. But anyway I wanted to see if these wonderful colors would work at all in the same way and unfortunitely I could not get them to.
I do think that this is a very useable pretty card even with it's flaws. Thank you for looking.
