Distressed Sketch

Distressed Sketch
Originally uploaded by pajalu (Paula)

Hi all,

Well I've been itching to get my fingers inky for the last two days now *sigh*. So finally tonight I did just that, but maybe I went a lot over board with the distress inks ;-P. I've gone all out & tried something new for me. I inked up my artistic window stamp from Hero Arts with Tim Holtz Faded Denim Distress Ink & then spritzed with water. I am pleased with the look. I have gone over most of the papers with two to three different distress colours, Vintage Photo, Faded Denim & Old Paper.

I just love these papers I brought recently - Kaiser kraft "Duchess Collection" with two other papers that have glitter on them (the houndstooth & the gingham) I can't remember what papers they are sorry :(. I orginally brought them to do male cards with, but as with the best of laid plans I have yet to make some guy cards. I'm not complaining as I am really happy with this card.

I used Shari's sketch 1 from this week's Hero Arts Blog. I am hoping to do some more of Shari's sketches before this week is up. I must say that there are some fabulous cards in the flickr pool. All I can say is I'm so glad that I don't have to do any of the judging.

Well I'm off to bed as it's nearly midnight & my dd will no doubt be up early in the morning so for now - TTFN

I agree - it is wonderful - just love the distress ink on all the papers. It is awesome
Hoping to get some stamping time over the next few days to do some of the sketches myself. Look forward to what you are going to do,
