Good Luck - Day One

Supplies:  WMS Free Spirit Boy, WMS Free Spirit Sentiments, Glossy Accents, 
PTI Dark Chocolate ink, PTI Dark Chocolate cardstock, Distress inks - 
tea dye and walnut stain, blending tool, glossy accents and water.

I had fun creating these "boy" Good Luck Cards.  This week the State Exams start for Leaving Certificate and Junior Certificate students and I seem to have lots of recipients on my list this year.

I used this fun set from Waltzingmouse stamps - Free Spirit Boy and Free Spirit Sentiments to create these two cards. 

I added glossy accents to the skater on the top card and to some of the circles/dots in the graphic design.  Then I added some drops of water on top of the inked image and the water erased the ink directly under it.  I then used a rag to lift the remaining water so the paper wouldn't warp.  It has a "bleaching" effect - which I like.

Thanks for peeking - hope you will enjoy my three days of "Good Lucks!"  - Be sure to pop back tomorrow for some more Good Luck Cards.
