Abstract Triangles

I have another 'the same, but different' cards to share today featuring the 'Abstract Triangles' background stamp by Simon Says Stamp. I started by stamping the background stamp on to a piece of watercolour paper using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed it using white powder. I then added some blue and green Distress Inks (Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China & Salty Ocean) on to my craft mat, added a little water, then 'smooshed' my embossed paper int them. I picked out a few of the triangles to paint with some stronger colour using the same inks, then splattered it with some water droplets...leaving it to stand for a minute before drying with a paper towel. I trimmed the panel in half, then cut partial circles using one of my Nesties, added them to my card bases, then stamped my sentiments (from a set that came free with a magazine) in the 'hole'.
