You know me – I love my distress! In fact- want to know a fun little secret? My next on-line class is going to be 100% about Tim Holtz distress products! Watch for that to be opening for registration in about 2-3 weeks…
For today though, we’re talking challenges over at the Simon Says Stamp blog and this one for distress is going to be a fun week. You could of course go in a direction like distressing edges, or an art journal page about being distressed – but me, my mind went to wonderful distress inks.
First up, a thank-you card that is simply a stamped (with water added to blend) with distress marker image that was then re-stamped with clear embossing ink and powder and the Thank You sentiment stamped with distress ink. That’s it! Distress can really holds its own.
Speaking of holding its own… the cap’n would like his turn…
The background is done with distress inks. Stamped with them, and also a foam blending tool all over the surface with them. Then a few squirts of water to make things blend and finished off with the Adventure Awaits stamp.
Our salty friend was stamped in black distress, then heat embossed with black powder. After that I colored him with distress markers which I then blended with a water pen before cutting him out (he is stamped onto specialty stamping cardstock) and placing him on this sea worthy card.
Another Monday, another challenge week! Simon is, as always, offering a generous $50 voucher that will be randomly drawn from the eligible entries each week. Join the fun by creating a project this week – and for your chance to win a $50 voucher you should hop on over and join in the challenge here.
