Work It Wednesday Card

I’m going to upload this card on the Work It Wednesday list at Simon Says Stamps  


I took an old dryer sheet and stamped the “Love” on it with Tim Holtz Black Distress Oxide ink.  I then colored the letters in with Copic Markers.  Next I sprayed the stamping front and back with Krylon Matte Finish 1311.  I knew I’d be mounting it on the cardstock with Matte Medium and I didn’t want the Distress Ink to smear.  Then I rubbed Distress Oxides; Worn Lipstick, Abandoned Coral, Wilted Violet, and Peacock Feathers with the Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending tool.  I put a little color over the letters, but I didn’t go over them so much that they got covered up.  I cut a 4″ X 4 3/8″ rectangle from the positioning the letters as shown in the photo.  I sprayed both front and back with the Matte Finish again.   Spray over the dryer sheet a couple times to insure that the colors don’t run. While that’s drying cut a 2 1/8″ X 1/2″ rectangle from a part of the leftover dryer sheet that has very little color on it.  Using a Peaock Feathers stamp pad and then Vintage Photo, color around the edges of the dryer sheet and the smaller rectangle.  Mount the dryer sheet to a 4 1/2″ X 4 7/8″ of white card stock using Matte Gel Medium.  Stamp  the sentiment on the smaller rectangle with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink, and glue to the card just below the “Love”.  Glue a small grey pearl to the middle of the “O”.
