A Little Bit of Paris
TGIF! Did you all have a great week? This is my 2nd post for 7 Kids College Fund Store Blog. I am very excited to share a Distress Ink Technique with you today that I used to create my card.
Here is the technique I used to create my center image. Ink the paper with Distress Ink using an Ink Blending Tool. Dry with a heat tool. Stamp your image with Distress Ink. I used Papillon Stamper Anonymous from the Tim Holtz Collection. Dust with Perfect Pearls which sticks to the stamped image and gives the vintage, shimmery look. Set with water in Mister.
I used the supplies below which you can purchase at 7 Kids College Fund.
Papillon Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection
Aged Mahogany Distress Ink
Antique Linen Distress Ink
Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink
Non-Stick Craft Sheet
Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool
Liquid Scrap Dots
Pink Advanced Tape Glider
If you have never tried liquid scrap dots I highly recommend them especially if you like to pop features on your card. I used it on my die cut butterfly which created dimension to the element. I hope I have inspired you today to try this technique. Have a wonderful weekend!
