Love the new Evergreen bough distress ink!!

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was busy, busy, but I got some crafting done. Here is the card I am sharing with you today:
For this card I used one of the colors from the Winter Limited Edition Pack of Distress inks. I love them all, but that Evergreen Bough is perfect.
So I started by coloring a piece of white cardstock with that ink and a foam applicator. Then I stamp the Flower Dot Pattern over it and I used the ink as watercolor, to color parts of the image. I used Liquid Pearls as accents. 
I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock using black Memento ink and adhered it to the front of the card. 
I always use white ribbon that I color with whatever ink I am using. So once it was dry, I made the loops with it and secured it with glossy accents, that I used to glue the button too.
The button is one that I have been hoarding forever. I love it, and as I wanted the card to have more bling, I covered all the crevices on the button with liquid pearls. It made is so shiny!!! Here is a close up:
To finish it, I rounded the bottom corners, and glued it using dimensionals to the front of a pre-made black card base.
I am entering this card into this month Hero Arts challenge, so wish me luck ;)!!!
Hope you liked it and thanks for stopping by!!


  1. beautiful card as usual! How do you get your liquid pearls so perfectly round and smooth? Whenever I use it, I always get a spiky top because of the way I pull the tip out it after I squeeze some out. I'm trying to do different methods but I still seem to get a spiky top!

  2. I love that button even more after reading you filled it in with liquid pearls - so pretty! This card is amazing, Cris - LOVE that color too! :)

  3. Beautiful and very unique. Thank you for giving such specific directions. I love your tip about using a white ribbon and inking it to match. This must be even more beautiful in real life. I'm adding you to my Google reader. You do such beautiful work.

  4. what a great technique. This card is so beautiful
