I was playing with my distress oxide inks the other day and having a blast.
I love how you can continually build up color without it all turning to mud.
This was my favorite of the bunch but I didn't want to cover it up with anything so it sat there for a few days.
When I saw the challenge at Inkspirational was to use the word hello on your project I thought of this background piece.
I used a die from Mama Elephant and cut the word hello 4 times - 3 from white that I stacked on top of each other and then offset them from 1 black one for shadow. The stamped sentiment is a simple one from MFT. I had to go over the sentiment with a black marker because when I stamped the black ink it looked more gray on the distress oxide ink.

A simple card but such a fun one to make.
