Presence of Wonder

Using the retro sketch gave me great inspiration for the card I want to share.
 I thought this sketch gave a really fun and simple way to add a sentiment to a card.  I used a thin vellum type paper so it didn't overwhelm my background.  I stamped my sentiment from Tim Holtz in a Distress Ink and while that was still wet, I added clear embossing powder which usually adds a little bit of intensity.  
 I loved how my background turned out.  I used a piece of watercolor paper and ran it through my Cuttlebug with a cover die from Lil' Inker Designs.  I didn't take out the cut pieces because I fell in love with the look of it cut but still all together.  Now I spritzed it with water and added random Distress Stain.  I loved the irregular way to paper took the ink.  
Here is the retro sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
