Color My Heart Challenge Blog - Post #212




I used Close To My Heart's Enchantment Paper Fundamentals with CTMH's Water Colour cardstock.

To embellish the card, I used CTMH's Black Sequins (discontinued), CTMH Sponge Dauber with CTMH Black ink to distress the paper edges and to do the background I did the smooshing technique. I used a 3 x 3 piece of page protector and inked it up in the CTMH Eggplant ink pad. I then sprayed the page protector with water and smooshed it onto my piece of paper.

I used CTMH's Silly Spider Web and Frightfully Fun (discontinued) stamp sets with CTMH's Black Pigment ink & CTMH's Clear Embossing Powder.

To make this fun fold card, the Card Base is 4" x 10.5" and I scored it at 2.75", 4", 6.5" & 7.75".
