Hope I don't bring winter weather back to those of you just finally getting Spring! Had to play along with the PTI MIM water splats challenge. Have you seen all the great cards people have posted? I'm hoping my colors are close enough for the new Colour Me challenge. I used Distress Inks faded jeans, broken china, salty ocean & peacock feathers. I tried 3 different papers with a big difference in results. My regular weight cardstock
took the ink the best, but I wasn't happy with my stamping & I thought heavier would tolerate the water better. It did, but must have a coating so the inks didn't soak in as much. However, the result was still beautiful--don't you think? The watercolor paper didn't work well--the water spots turned into big splotches, but I can probably save it with some dry embossing & more ink. I used Snowflake Flurries--one of my all-time favorite sets. In the close up you can see the larger
image stamped in white & the smaller one in the center is done in the Distress Ink. The sentiment is white embossed & I added tiny dots of Stickles before tying on the white sparkle ribbon. The dies are my much loved Lil' Inkers rectangles. Good technique to use when you aren't feeling very creative--simple with really stunning results & lots of possibilities. Your visit & comments really make my day--thank you so much.
