For my card, I employed a little gesso resist technique, which is something I've been showcasing in some videos over the past few weeks. For this card I actually used gesso as an ink for the stamps. I used stamp 'n press foam to load the gesso onto the stamp and then stamped directly onto a piece of manila. Once the gesso was dry, I put some Distress Stain on my craft sheet and ran the manila through the stain. The gesso resists the stain! Love that! (You can see the entire technique here) I then added the fun arrow, which you can bend because it's acrylic (love that!) and plane. A piece of embossed cardstock and the sentiment were the finishing touches!
