Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380 - thanks for stopping by!
I'm playing along with the Distress Addicts Challenge going on over at the Lawnscaping Challenges Blog and I've got a fun card to share with you. This challenge is all about using Distress Inks, distressed edges, whatever you think of as "distressed"....
So, I pulled out the sweet Lawn Fawn "Blue Skies" stamp set and my brand spanking new "Abandoned Coral" Distress Ink, along with a few other Distress Inks and got busy...
Using some Ranger Watercolor paper I inked up my background using Broken China, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distressed Inks. I splattered a few drops of water here and there to give a watercolor look to the inks.
I distressed the edges of my mat and added a bit of machine stitching.
The hot air balloon was watercolored using the following Distress Inks:
The tiny little hearts are from the Bugs and Kisses die set and they were watercolored with the Abandoned Coral Distress Ink.
That about wraps it up for me today. I hope you can stop by tomorrow for the
Crafty Friendship Blog Hop that I will be participating in along with some wonderfully talented crafty friends I've made. There will be some gorgeous projects and lots of fabulous give-aways, so be sure to stop back in tomorrow!
