His and Hers online class: Day Two - make a wish

For this card, I took inspiration from Jennifer McGuire's stamping technique with white ink and die inks.  What great ideas she has!
 I took a petal stamp from Maile's Modern Basics set and layered Vintage Cream (PTI) with Hero Arts mid tone inks.
For the mid tone inks, I used red royal, charcoal, cup o' joe, wet cement and tide pool.  I layered the smaller petals in die inks and then smallest polka dots in Vintage Cream.
I added the sentiment using Fresh ink in chocolate and then added platinum Liquid Pearls for a little bling.
I really like the idea for this card and will be trying it again - the look of white and light inks always looks so cool on dark card stock!  And the layering reminds me of velveteen stamping which I have always loved.  I tried it here and here ...

Supplies:
Paper: PTI Kraft
Ink: Hero Arts mid tone inks - tide pool, red royal, cup o' joe, wet cement; PTI Vintage Cream; Fresh chocolate
Stamps: PTI Modern Basics, Think Big
Misc: Platinum Liquid Pearls

This is beautiful Cara. So simple to do, yet such impact. I also just love this technique, especially for the masculine card. You have been a very busy stamper!
