Today's card uses a stamped image and a sentiment from John Lockwood's new Clear Stamp designs for Creative Expressions. The set used here is Lotus Frame Elements Clear Stamp set.

I decided to use the Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks to colour in the main stamped image. I then used the same colours to make a background, by flicking the drawing inks onto a piece of Coconut White card and for the bigger dots by dabbing a cotton bud into the drawing ink bottle, tipping the bottle over and back again, and then dabbing onto the card. The bottles have a non-spill valve in them so the cotton bud only absorbs a small amount of ink when used in this way.

I blended Distress Ink around the edges and trimmed the card with some ribbon and embellishments available from Creative Expressions.

The new Self-adhesive Pearl Corners were a perfect addition.

Happy crafting!
