Distress Inks Background!

I created this beauty using Crafter's Companion Stamp It: Take Flight and Sentimentals: Greetings.  To make that background, I used some Distress Inks.  I inked up a non stick craft mat, spritzed it with water and then placed the stamped panel onto the inks.

Distress Inks I used:
Squeezed Lemonade
Picked Raspberry
Salty Ocean
Peeled Paint
Barn Door
Spiced Marmalade

Lawnscaping Challenge 86: Sponsored by Lawn Fawn

Welcome back to another Lawnscaping Challenge! It makes Mondays better, right???

We are sponsored by the always amazing Lawn Fawn

I used Our Friendship Grows with coordinating Lawn Cuts along with Distress Inks to create this card.  I inked up my craft mat with Distress Inks, then I sprayed water on them and used both a water brush and a paint brush to color everything in.  I added in a little bit of colored pencil for some fine details.

I hope you will join us to win!!!

Vintage Christmas

Hi! The Sentimentals Vintage Christmas Release from Crafter's Companion will be available later today!!! Woo hoo! 

For this fun card, I used Vintage Christmas: Home for Christmas along with Dee Gruenig: Ahhh... Christmas
and Dee Gruenig: Jolly Holly sets.  The holly and ornament were colored in with some Marvy markers and spritzed with water to give a watercolor-ish effect.

I added a little Distress Ink: Squeezed Lemonade to the edges to give it a little extra pop!

Thanks for stopping by!
