When I’m having a hard time coming up with a card project idea, I usually turn to smooshing some color onto watercolor paper to make a background. Inspiration almost always comes right after.
This time I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to layer up the autumnal colored background. I added some die cuts from an Altenew set and a sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp stamp set. I like the warm feeling of this card. I hope you enjoy the video! 😍

Remember, if mailing a card with layers and embellishments in the United States, be sure and buy “non-machinable” postage so your cards don’t get smooshed in the USPS postal machines.
If you try this technique, be sure and share your artwork with us on the @ladymichellecreates Facebook page.
Thanks for spending time with me!
