Today I have a super fun card to share with you using the Harmony Water Reactive Inks and Markers from Spectrum Noir. Harmony Water Reactive Inks are slow drying allowing you to re-work it with water for a blended distressed look. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Before we get started we have a winner for my June Giveaway for the Distressed Edges Rectangle Dies. The winner is Glennis Farell. Please email me your address at email@example.com
It's time for another giveaway. For everything you follow using Rafflecopter you will be entered in the drawing. The contest will run from July 14 to July 31 midnight. The prize is the 3-D Embossing Folder Botanical from Tim Holtz.
Step 1 - Trim White Cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 4 1/4" and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2 size)
Step 2 - Stamp Gill Friends images using Gina K Amalgam Ink on White Cardstock. Let dry then color in using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. A full color listing is down below. Diecut images with matching Gill Friends Dies.
Step 3 - Trim White Cardstock to 7" x 4 1/4" and using an ink applicator apply Ocean Blue Harmony Water Reactive Ink. Spray with water and after 15 seconds dry with a Heat Tool. The ranger heat tool is best for slower drying.

Once completed diecut Double Stitched Rectangles to the panel. Distress the edges with Midnight Harmony Water Reactive Ink and then adhere to card using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
