I played along with SCS mix-ability challenge to create this card!
I used TH Distress Stains, Victorian Velvet and Tumbled glass. Scraped Gesso over the top using a gift card. Stamped the distress stamps and realized that the black ink was too bold so I covered it with a thin layer of gesso. When the paper was dry I sponged "Broken China" around the edges.
I created the banner using MFT Party Banner and used the same technique as above for the color.
I stamped the heart from Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps a HC - Be Proud and colored it with Copics. Even though I thought I was using a good color of blue the shade turned out just a bit off so a dab of gesso fixed that! I distressed the edges with a distressing tool and darkened the edges with ink.
For my final touch I sprinkled white acrylic paint on the card.
