Reveal it

Hi everyone, hope you are well. I had a huge to do list this morning. You know how time management books tell you to categorise things into urgent, important etc lists- well today everything seemed to be urgent! Somehow though I've knuckled down and got through lots of jobs, so I'm taking a few minutes out.

Today's card is something different for me and the result of some rare play time in the craft room.

The products I used for this are all from Craftwork Cards. I began by using a Distress It mat for my background.

My second layer is a Reveal It mat- this came as a white embossed mat and when you add ink the pattern emerges. I used 3 distress inks for this- Dusty Conchord, Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry. I swiped the inks on a glass mat, spritzed with a little water, then dipped the mat in. When it was dry I cut it down slightly and added it to the card.

The topper is a Reveal It topper. I used distress inks again, but this time using a blending tool to add Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers inks.

I finished off with some ribbon and punched flowers.

I loved playing with inks yesterday, so I hope you like the finished result. Thanks for visiting today x
