Budda Belly Card

I always loved Budda statues when I was a little girl and was told to rub the belly for good luck.  Not sure if that’s still PC these days or not, but it was a fond memory nonetheless!  I used a few little tricks and techniques to make today’s card.  I started with white cardstock and stamped my image with black Memento Ink.  Then I embossed the page with a bamboo embossing folder.  I brushed Tim Holtz Distress Ink very lightly over the embossed area to bring out the bamboo.  Then I masked my Budda image while I sponged on several colors of Distress Ink to make the background.  Finally, I colored my image with Bic Mark-Its and Spectrum Noir markers.
