{Spotlight Project} Wanderlust Backgrounds With Deepti

Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to a spotlight feature. Today I am back with more fun with Stamp Club set  "Wanderlust"  For this one I decided to use the images in the set to create two backgrounds. Let me show you...

Step 1 - I started out cutting out two water color card stocks. On one of these I stamped the images with watermark ink and dried it as is. No heat embossing powder.

Step 2 - I then did some wet on dry water coloring adding three shades of pigments. The Versamark ink absorbed some of this pigment to create a subtle image background.

Step 3 - For my next panel, I used the Distress inks and stamped the images after misting it with water. I repeated the process multiple times. I also misted water on the panel directly.

Step 4 - Next I die cut the Just go sentiment and did in laid look using black foam sheet die cuts.

To add more interest I stamped and fussy cut two more images and simply adhered them with the sentiment. I also added some black splatter.

Here is a closeup into each card...
