Distress Inks, 'That Special Touch of ...... Mask' and some Micro Beads.

Hello bloggers, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who left a comment on my previous post . I was overwhelmed by the interest shown here on my blog, on Facebook and by email.
Thank you so much.

For those of you that asked  the 'How were the Splats created?' question, they were made by 'whacking/ slamming' various Distress Stains down hard onto the card stock so that the ink splattered out! Easy, but mind you don't dent your table!

On to today's card which was made using a 'That Special Touch of ...Mask' from Clevercut UK. I taped  the mask down onto the card stock with very lo tac masking tape. 
I chose various colours of Distress Inks and  coloured the image through the mask.
Remove the mask and dry the inks with a heat gun.  
After cleaning the mask I attached it back into place and taped it firmly down again.
I applied Translucent Paste from Sweet Poppy Stencils  and after very carefully removing the mask, I covered the image with clear Micro Beads that are also available in a large pot from Sweet Poppy Stencils.
I left my project to dry overnight!
Thanks for your visit to my blog today 
I'll be back soon.
