In Distress

Not me, my card. I have been messing around with the Distress Inks. I saw the Hero Arts blog a week or so ago and loved this card.

Here is my version:


I used Distress Inks to watercolor the background, stamped the “hello” stamp and embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I inked up the stamp using the “walking through the ink” technique on the Hero Arts site and stamped it on the watercolor paper. Add a little lace, a couple of flowers with some twine and there you go. Oh, and I stamped the envelope pattern on the Kraft card before putting it all together.

The ink colors I used are Broken China, Peeled Paint, and Rusty Hinge. All stamps are from Hero Arts, as are the paper flowers.

I hope your week is going well, thanks for stopping by.
