Hello crafty friends!
Sue is hosting Trend Week at
and she wants you to create a background using any type of ink
you have, be that Distress Inks or Oxides, or any dye inks or sprays.
Here's my card:
and the inside:
I haven't jumped onto the Distress Oxide bandwagon yet, as I still have plenty of
the Distress Inks to play with, and that's what I used, doing the smooshing technique.
After it was completely dry, I used my MISTI to stamp the image and sentiment multiple
times to get a dark coverage.* I still felt it needed something, so I tinted some crackle embossing
paste with dark chocolate acrylic paint and applied it to opposite corners.
Once that dried, the panel was framed with dark brown cs and adhered
to the card base with foam tape.
Ready to play along? Of course you are! Simply link up at Just Us Girls
so we can admire it! If you need more ideas, please check out the amazing
creations that my teammates and our Guest Designer, Kathie Durgan
have made, and leave them some bloggy lovin!
Thanks for visiting!
* Pay no attention to the fact that I forgot to ground the image with a shadow. Ugh!
