So Distressed

Here we are at our last day of November Sneak Peek Sets! Do you sometimes look at your blank sheet of card stock and think, “I wish there was a way I could warm it up or add some interest or texture without taking anything away from the main image? Or have you been longing to get your fingers inky and dabble in the mixed media craze?


I created this tag and the one in yesterday's post with this awesome distress stamp set.  I started off with a manilla tag by Inkssentials that I Picked up at my local craft store.  Then, I stamped one of the distress images in embossing ink and sprinkled it with clear embossing powder.  The rest of the distress images are stamped in various Tim Holtz distress inks.  I stamped and colored the sweet little butterflies with my copic markers and added glitter glue for some sparkle.  The seam binding is hand dyed with Tim Holtz inks as well.

Very cool! I like how you used a lighter ink to create the background. I must remember that. I tend to use a darker ink.
