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
