Always in My Heart - Simon Says Stamp July 2020 Card Kit

Good morning! I'm stopping by with another card created with the July Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Home Sweet Home! This kit is such a fun kit at a time when many of us have been spending lots of time at home! The included stamp set by the same name has a lovely and versatile cityscape, and is and filled with fabulous sentiments, there is some fabulous pattern paper,  fun die set - not to mention the Cardstock, stickers, and more!

Today I'm using the stamp set to create this bright and colorful design with distress inks!

For this card, I stamped the fun row of houses along the bottom edge of a panel of white cardstock using black pigment ink so it would be water friendly. I then used an ink blender to blend some distress inks over portions of the image, then misted with water and let the color run as they wanted. Once it dried, I repeated to deepen the color a bit - blending over it then misting with water again.

I added some white splatters using some thinned down white acrylic paint, and again let that dry, before matting with some black cardstock and mounting on a white cardbase!

Here is a closer look at the entire kit contents - you can find all the details HERE:
