Vibrant! And textural...love it! You get my vote!!
Nice, I love that background stamp and I so love working with Distress stains. This turned out wonderful.
I love the back ground! Great card!
Wow Anna-Karin! You are right! The colors are vibrant! Thank you for directing me to your card to see!
You took two elements that I always wondered how to use, alphabet stamps and gears, and you made a neat card out of them! I like how you used both elements. Great Job!
Such a fun card, Anna-Karin! Love all the colors! TFS
Fabulous! Love the colors here!

This card is for the Hero Arts April challenge, I used one of the sketches. The alphabet pattern was clear embossed on watercolour paper. The paper was cut into four panels and each panel was coloured with Distress Stains (Broken China, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade) and then misted with Perfect Pearls and water.
Four gears were cut from grungeboard, painted white and stamped with a text stamp using Archival Ink. Then the gears were painted with Distress crackle paint Rock Candy. After they dried, a bit of Mustard Seed Distress Stain was added to the cracks. TFL!
