Distressed



No not me - just the card! I wanted to make a card with distress inks after teaching a workshop on Stamping with Distress Inks on Saturday morning so was looking around for a challenge I could enter when I found this great new challenge blog: La-La Land Crafts blog where the challenge this week is Distressing - perfect! This card is the result and I was really pleased with how it turned out.

I stamped my Gorjuss girl using distress ink and with a water brush just went round the outline to create a bit of shadow, I then worked into the image a bit just spreading the black ink around a bit, I added the red with a Promarker. I then edged the card with black distress ink and stamped some swirls with Versamark spritzed with water. I then masked my image and spritzed the whole piece of card with Glimmer Mist. My backing paper is from K&Co Classic K Mckenna stack. I had made the flower previously and was waiting for a project that it worked for - this was it!
