Distress Inks + Sizzix Thinlits - Mixed Media #2

Hi there friends! Shaz here -  with another DT post for Bizzy Bec's Online craft store.
Here's a peek...
Items used - all are Pre-order
Distress Inks-

Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Dried Marigold, Cracked Pistachio, Fired Brick

 Tested die combination on scrap cardstock before launching into good cardstock, to get position and size. Then marked it on the main card piece with pencil, and rubbed out later.
Using the Distress inks as listed above, I smooched them generously over the water colour cardstock do more than you think you'll need as I had to re-ink it. Then spritz the back of paper with water so it stays flat while you add water and glimmer or shimmer mist to top of ink. Allow to dry. Added spatters of ink to top card die cut; assembled card as below..
Layering up hugs die three pieces with double sided tape, used my usual system of adding layers while still in base sheet.. to keep it all in place.

Finished card -  pop it up on foam tape, added pearls to compliment the shimmery card stock on base. More details on my blog post.
