Convention Swap Card

The card I'm sharing today is the one I made to share with my Stamping By The Sea teammates at convention. I received some of the most ah-ma-zing swaps back from these talented ladies!! I will begin sharing those tomorrow on my Sweet Escape Studio Facebook page.
 If you haven't headed over there to give the page a "like" yet, now's the time! You will love what you see! We even had an Artisan design team finalist in our group. :)
Now for my card:
I chose to stick with simple elegance for this card. I use the Trust God & Papillon Potpourri stamp sets, Island Indigo & Staz-On ink, Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, & Whisper White card stock, both the Elegant Butterfly & Bitty Butterfly punches, Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents, and Tea Lace Paper Doilies
I also used two very important tools to create the watercolor swish & distressed effects:

The Aqua Painters can be found here.

*I dropped a little Island Indigo reinker into the stamp pad lid & used the Aqua Painter to randomly brush the ink across the white cardstock... Super easy, but still very pretty!

And one of my all-time favorite tools, the Stampin' Distress, can be found here.
Thanks for visiting today!
