Hi there stampers! I can’t believe the new catalog launches next week!  I am beyond excited as this catalog has some truly amazing products.  As a demonstrator, I was able to pre-order some products from the new catalog and I’ll be showcasing those in my card today.

I started with some of this gorgeous Wood Textured DSP that I can’t stress enough is just beautiful in person.  The paper looks realistic and is great for masculine and feminine cards.  I then heat embossed in white embossing powder the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set.  This one stamp is why I bought this set however the other images are super cute too.  After stamping in Versamark and heat embossing, I wanted to try to add some color to the open images by using some watercolor.  I knew that traditional watercolors would not give me the look I was going for against this dark background so I decided to try using my new Distress Oxide inks.  And guess what, it worked fabulously.  
I used Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide inks with a little bit of water to apply color to embossed images.  Because this is not watercolor paper, you want to use as little water as possible.  I had to apply several layers of the ink in order to get the depth of color I was looking for.
I then used the new Lovely Words Thinlits to cut out 3 of the hugs sentiment and glued all 3 together to get that chipboard effect.  I added some ink splatter to the background using Copic Opaque White ink and adhered the “hugs” sentiment to the front.  
I then adhered the wood panel to a layer of Pink Pirouette and this was adhered to a top folding A2 card base made from Early Espresso.  To finish off the card I added some Wink of Stella to the hugs sentiment and add three water droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.
