Today's new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is Ink and/or Paint which gives you a lot of scope for creativity.
My image and sentiment were stamped using a recent magazine cover mount set, but this card is really all about the background.
I cut the panel from white card then inked it with Distress Inks, starting with Antique Linen in the centre, then Tea Day and finally Walnut Stain. Then I embossed it with a cog wheel embossing folder and finally finished the edges with a narrow strip of metallic copper paint.
I used some copper mirri card to mat the image and sentiment and finished off with some Candi.
