Tres Caballeros Card by Mandy C

What I used:

Lost Coast Designs Stamp ~ Tres Caballeros
Kaisercraft Clear Stamp ~ Script
StazOn Solvent Ink Pads ~ Cactus Green, Teal
Ranger Archival Ink Pad ~ Jet Black
Woodware Clear Silicone Adhesive 
Cosmic Shimmer Mists 
Rock Salt
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads ~ Bundled Sage, Tattered Rose, Old Paper, Worn Lipstick
Cats Eye Chalk Inks
Non stick craft mat
Water spritzer
White card
Square card blank

1. Create a rock salt background by spritzing your Cosmic Shimmers onto card and sprinkling rock salt on top. Leave to dry and then rub the salt off. This creates amazing backgrounds.

2. Make a distressed background on white card using your Distress Inks and non-stick craft mat.

3. Take your card blank and using Tattered Rose, colour around the edges. Once dry, stamp with your script stamp and teal StazOn.

4. On your distress background, stamp the Tres Caballeros stamp, then stamp just the hats (if you can). Cut out the Caballeros stamped image out and edge with Cats Eye chalk ink.

5. Your background card blank should be dry by now. Cut a slightly smaller size square out of the rock salt background and attach to the blank. Then attach the distress ink card with the Caballeros on.

6. Cut out the hats and attach to the card using silicone adhesive.

7. Lastly, edge card using cactus green StazOn.
