Good morning all.
Well that was great while it lasted, the weather that is! Back to normal temps and a bit of rain.
Today marks the start of a new challenge at Fantasy Stampers. This time our theme is -
Now that's not really my comfort zone so while Googling for inspiration some of the results referred to Distressed Inks and they are my comfort zone so that's how I ended up with this -
I'd seen the card over at Muse by Marion Vagg and loved it and wanted to take part as I've not got around to playing for a couple of weeks. This is her inspirational card-
To start I inked up a piece of card with a couple of DIs, then die cut the butterfly with a MB Pippi Butterfly then cut the panel with my MFT pierced rectangle die. I added a spritz of water and a few drops of water to bleach out some colour then stamped Thank You and embossed in white.
The background panel was stamped using my Stampin Up Woodgrain background with Versamark then heat embossed with detail white. I wanted the butterfly to be more of a contrast to the panel so wet it with water, let it stand and then mopped up the excess colour with a cloth. I added a few sequins to finish my card.
So what ever your interpretation of Distress why not have a go and join us. Just remember we need to see some traditional stamping on your project, NO DIGIs.
Pop over to the main blog and check out the rest of the team's inspiration.
I would also like to join in the fun at -
