Grungy Monday 14 - Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls
Studio L3 has offered up yet another fun technique (from the 2008 archives of the ever so talented King of Distress - Tim Holtz) for us this week. If you do wander over to Tim's site today - check out the fabulous 4th of July card he made. I thought I could include the photo below, but obviously - I have alot to learn about blogger.
Now, on to today's challenges. Linda tempted us to get back into using our mini misters with some favorite inks and powders. Simon Says Stamp and Show has challenged us to use a Flourish, and Hels of the Sunday Stampers fame, has added words to her challenge this week. I thought both fit well in my card today. I used 2 combinations - Spiced Marlamade DI/Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls, and Scattered Straw DI/Green Patina Perfect Pearls. I first stamped one of my favorite 'rockin' heart stamps using picket fence dabber to create a resist for the sprays. I sprayed the maralade color on top, the scattered straw on the bottom. I also colored my ribbon with the marmalade spray. I love the color combo and the intensity of the color. This is definitely something I will try again. The sentiment stamp is from Wendy Vecchi, flouris - Stampington and Company.
I'll share the 4th of July idea in a few minutes. Happy Freedom day to all my stamping buddies - I am proud of all our military and thankful to be living the life I am.
