This is such a quick technique but looks really effective. A piece of Whisper White card was masked off using a sticky note. I stamped the floral image from the Happy Watercolour Stamp Set in Versamark and heat embossed with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. Soft Sky, Pool Party and Smoky Slate ink were then sponged over the image to create a graduated effect.
To add more texture I then stamped the splatters (technical term!) from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set over the sponging in the same inks. The sentiment is from the A Round Array Stamp Set and was punched out using the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch. This was popped up on Dimensionals over a piece of Whisper White Baker's Twine. The card from was matted onto Soft Sky card and a Basic Black card base.
I then made a quick envelope using the Envelope Punch Board - such a versatile piece of kit and a great way to use up retired papers!
