Bicycle Valentine using Credit Card Swipe Technique and Distress Oxide Inks

Hello from design team member, Heidi!

I have been making some cards using the Credit Card Swipe Technique.  If you need a reminder how to do this, you just use Distress Oxide (or any ink that you can mix water with) and smoosh them on your craft sheet.  Spritz the ink with a touch of water and then pick up the ink with the side of an old credit card, and swipe across your paper. Repeat till you get the look you like.

  I used regular cardstock here and three colors of Distress Oxide inks (Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet).

I then die cut my background and simply stamped a bold Just for Fun silhouette Bicycle image over top with black Versafine Ink.  I added the die cut LOVE sentiment to make a sort of non-traditional Valentine. I like how it turned out!

Have a wonderful day!
