Today, we are showcasing the very versatile Hand Stitched Rectangles Die set and the Handmade from Me stamp set.
I started by doing some ink blending on my card panel with various Distress inks and then took a baby wipe and laid it over the ring stencil. I pushed the baby wipe down keeping it steady and this allowed some of the ink to be wicked away and you are left with this really cool effect. After that was dry, I then die cut the panel with the second to largest stitched rectangle die.
I then stamped the for you image with Versafine ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I added some strips of patterned paper and some clear sequins and the card is done.
And here's a close up of the products from Clearly Whimsy Stamps used on today's card.
