Triple Stamping Layered Card

Hello Friends,

I am here with a new card. This is a A2 sized layered card.  I have used foam tape to pop up the front panel and give dimension to the card. In this card, I have used the distress ink smooshing technique for the first time. I created a background with blending 3 distress inks with a blending tool. Later on I generously added water to the card front and covered it with food wrap and tried creating creases over it such that after drying it leaves a pattern on the cardstock. This technique was inspired from a Jennifer McGuire video I had recently seen , but that was done with water colours. I tried to use the same technique using distress ink. It helped me get a smooth blended background.
Later on I added a few flicks of paint (golden and black) to add more interest to the card front.Then I stamped the flower images and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I finished the card with a sentiment embossed in white embossing powder and adding a few sequins.
The supplies used are listed at the end. Do leave your comments if you like the card.
