Texture with Distress Ink

Hi everyone! Marina here, hope you had a great new years celebration. I'm so excited to share with you my first post for Create A Smile.

It's just to show you that you can make a fun and festive cards without even having a festive-themed stamp, except for a simple sentiment. 

I've basically white head embossed the Arrows background on watercolour paper because I, then, dabbed my paper on to some watery distressed ink to get a fun background look. I've also heat embossed gold glitter to create a panel for my sentiment to sit on :)

To use watercolour paper because you can do add more watery distressed ink to get the look you want. 


  1. Love this, Marina! The arrows background is great for a focal point and the white embossed sentiment really pops!

  2. Awesome card Marina great way to start with us.

  3. The contrast of colors is so very fun!
