Dusky Damask and distress markers

Hi there, today's card features the new Dusky Damask themeplate available at Chocolate Baroque and distress markers. I love these pens and i'm really enjoying trying them out with different types of card and different techniques

I applied distress markers to the stamp and stamped on to the Ranger card, I only had the ATC size card so I used two together. I've often struggled with getting a crisp image with this technque in the past but it works beautifully on this card. I overstamped with Claudine Helmuth Matte Multi Medium and left it to dry. The multi medium acts as a resist so that inking over the card with distress inks leaves a white halo around the image. The backing paper is from Decadent Brocade

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card making mamas: Rubber stamping
Crafty Creations: Free for all
Do you stack up: cool colours
That Craft Place: Anything goes

Thanks for popping by

  4. This reminds me of forget-me-nots. Lovely combination with the touch of pink amongst the browns & the little blue flowers. Intriguing technique with the Matte Medium.
