De-Stressing with a Little Dina

Hi Everyone
To escape from the mayhem that my life seems to be in at the moment I have escaped to a little oasis of peace, my craftroom. 

I have made a card using one of the fabulous silhouette images from Dina Wakleys "Silhouetted Women" 
I first coloured the stamp with 3 different colours of Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers and then very lightly misted with water before stamping onto mixed media card. I then covered the image with clear embossing powder and heat embossed the image, then repeated so I had 3 images.
I then used distress ink for my background. Once dry I then removed the embossing powder with a hot iron and copy paper.
Onto the card blank I stamped the Dina text from her "Textures" set and the #sentiment is from Tim Holtz.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by
