Today I'm sharing a set of embossed resist Distress Ink Prayers greeting cards. These cards were created for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive. You can read all about the card drive HERE. I hope that if you can, you will help out this wonderful cause. Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts have brought back the amazing Prayers Stamp and Die Set from the STAMPtember event. It's on reserve right now and should be back in stock by February 12th if you were still wanting to pick up this set. Even better? 25% of profits goes to Lasting Hearts!
I created this quick and easy set of cards using some embossing on watercolor cardstock with some of my favorite Distress Inks applied over the embossed greetings and images.
To create this set of cards I used an assembly line style to create twelve cards. I started by die cutting rectangles from watercolor cardstock using a Small 4 Bar Stitched Rectangle Die. I stamped greetings from the Prayers Stamp and Die Set on the panels using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
On each panel, I applied three colors of Distress ink, blending each for a seamless ombre look. The colors I used are shown below each of the following photos:
[ Distress Ink Colors: Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron ]
[ Distress Ink Colors: Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass ]
[ Distress Ink Colors: Abandoned Coral, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade ]
I spritzed each panel with water from the Distress Sprayer. I let the water sit for 30 seconds on each panel and blotted the water with a paper towel. I made sure and buffed any excess ink off the embossing with the paper towel as well.
Once the panels were completely dry and attached each panel to 4 Bar Note Cards.
