Finger Painting with Distress Inks - Day 3

Today’s card was created for day three as card captain at Michael Strong Rubber Stamps using one of Mike’s Cloisonne Crane rubber stamps and a feather stamp by PSX.

I embossed the feather stamp with white embossing powder and then used my fingers to add the different colours of distress ink over the embossed image. After inking the image I then took a cloth and rubbed the embossed areas removing any ink.

I layered the card with several different embossed papers, added a beautiful ribbon and the crane as an embellishment and the finishing touch for the card.
