I saw on Kristina Werner’s blog a variation of this idea. I put three colors of distress paints on my craft mat and sprayed with water then swiped ┬áthe card stock through. dried and repeated several times. Then I ran it through an embossing folder in the sizzix. Then highlighted the embossed circles with undiluted Distress Paint

This is my first attempt at using the new Distress Paints, the colors are so vibrant. I used watercolor paper and got quite a matte finish, I am going to go try now with a manilla card stock and see how it finishes

I saw a card like this at my Mom’s. I think it is a Stampin Up idea. The tree stamp is by Stampin Up, I don’t have the packaging for the sentiment stamps so not sure who they are by,but it is a very nice set

When mailing cards it’s easier if they are only one layer without bulky embellishments. This is a very simple card using Eclipse masking tape on cardstock and through the Sizzix to get the shape cut out, then using both the negative space and the shape as a mask on a card and inking, then remove the mask
