Following directions, I used a mini brayer to roll some distress ink (tattered rose) on a non-stick craft sheet, then rolled the brayer across the card stock. Replenish the brayer from the craft sheet and gently cover the cardstock. Dry with heat tool.
To finish the ATC, I made a slide mount out of the same card stock I mounted the background on, and created raised swirls with the Cuttlebug & Swirl embossing folder. I rubbed the metallic gold ink pad over the embossed slide mount to make the swirls stand out, and placed it over another romantic image. A metal flower with a matching brad finished the ATC.
