Abstract Triangles

Today's card makes a feature of a Simon Says Stamp background stamp called 'Abstract Triangles'. I stamped it on to watercolour paper using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. I smooshed some Distress Ink pads (Wild Honey, Seedless Preserves, Faded Jeans & Evergreen Bough) on to my messy mat, sprtized them with a little water, then smooshed the embossed watercolour paper into the inks. I dried it using my heatgun, then used a paintbrush to pick up some of the remaining ink to colour some individual triangles here and there. I distressed the edges a little, then matted the panel on to a snippet of black card. For the sentiment, I combined a couple of the stamps from the 'Everyday Sentiments' set by Happy Little Stampers, and stamped them on to another snippet of black card using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed them using white embossing powder. To prevent it from covering too much of the background, I carefully cut around the lettering, then added it on top of the background panel using 3D foam pads.
