Forget Me Not "Devil On The Rocks" Tornado Birthday Card

Today I have played with the "Devil On The Rocks" stamp that I used yesterday making this card (produced by Forget Me Not)

I started by using Distress Inks to create the background colour.  In the middle I used "Candied Apple" then worked my way out using the following shades. Wilted Violet, Blue Print Sketch and Chipped Sapphire.

I then used an Andy Skinner "Tornado" stencil spritzed with water and then laid on top of the Distress Ink background.  The area where the water hits the page gets a kind of bleached, lighter look to it.  You may need to lightly dab and settled areas of water with the edge of a kitchen towel.  

Once the background was dry, I stamped the devil image using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.  I extended the rock image by using a black Sharpie pen.  I then added some highlight areas to the devil by using a white Signo Pen.

Finally, I typed and printed out the sentiment on grey paper (the font I used is "American Typewriter" in the size of 18).  I then cut it into words and then mounted onto black cardstock and adhered to the card itself.
