Cards- again!

I'm back with a few more cards. Soon I should have some scrapbook pages to share again. 

First up is a couple of cards I made using the current sketch at Stick it Down:

I made a couple of graduation cards. I have recently seen several examples of work using inks and plastic packaging to create backgrounds.  I used watercolor paper for my background and Distress Stains for the ink. I then found some coordinating die cuts and stamped and heat embossed the image and sentiment on them. 

For my second card, I tried a technique that May Flaum demonstrated recently on her blog.  I love how using the watermark ink for the stamping makes a subtle design on the the background. I will definitely be doing this more! A die cut sentiment, some washi tape and sequins finished this card off.
