For this technique my go to paper is distress watercolor paper. I sprayed the card stock with antique linen spray stain, spritz with water and dried with a heat tool. I went in after with frosted juniper…omg this color is just gorgeous.

Embossed SSS Old Letter with distress embossing ink, rubbed off some of the ink in some of the spots so that it left some blank spots and used ranger liquid platinum embossing powder.

Using neenah 80lb cardstock I covered it with matte collage medium and covered it with garland glitter from the TH sparkle kit. After it had completely dried I cut out the beautiful stylized flower wafer die.

I die cut the same flower die from my inked up panel and covered it from the backside with Judikans plastic sheet.

To finish off the card I add some TH metallic droplets which I did grunge up a little using mushroom alchohol ink. Added a sentiment from TH metallic sentiments. Added a few splatters and popped up the panel using fun foam and put it on Neenah 110lb card base.
